The Alhambra Resumes Full Scale Operations: January 15th

Harlem, NY January 1, 2022. – The historic Alhambra, located in the heart of Harlem on the southwest corner of Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard and West 126th Street, will reopen to host weddings, parties, corporate events, lectures, church meetings and entertainment events on January 15th following a 20-month Covid-19 closure, Tracy Dechabert, CEO announced today.

The multi-functional facility experienced a soft opening at the end of 2021 playing host to BET-Television, Netflix, several weddings, and holiday parties.

“We are excited to offer this unique and flexible event space to support a wide variety of business and community organizations, “Ms. Dechabert noted. “Our facilities are ready and can be tailored or decorated to accommodate almost any vision. And our staff are trained and ready to assist in the planning and production of first-class events.”

Built originally as a vaudeville theater in 1905, the Alhambra played an important role in the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s and 1930s and in the jazz scene of the 1930s and 1940s hosting performances by Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, Jelly Roll Morton, Duke Ellington, and others. The spacious and architecturally significant space still reverberates with the energy of an entertainment venue. The Alhambra was configured and designed to represent the Latin Casino nightclub in the 2019 Netflix movie “The Irishman.”

The Grand Ballroom, ornate with 6000 square feet featuring an arched ceiling, a classic central chandelier, a balcony, a stage, a dance floor, and DJ booth can welcome up to 500 people.

The warmer and more intimate Chrystal Ballroom, with 2400 square feet of space, hosts as many as 250 guests and features separate bar and buffet areas. Our event coordinators can provide references for top-rated florists, caterers, photographers, cake bakers, bands, DJs, entertainers, and limo services.
