Clubs you need to visit before you die: Avant Gardner & The Brooklyn Mirage

Avant Gardner is the epicenter of New York City entertainment.

The 80,000 square foot venue complex occupies an entire city block of industrial East Williamsburg, containing a compound of stages and full-service event spaces.

Avant Gardner’s diverse calendar celebrates community and culture, offering an endless range of experiences highlighted by the space’s unrivaled audio visual features.

The vast complex includes The Brooklyn Mirage, The Great Hall, The King’s Hall and The Lost Circus, all serving as individual locales, or combined to make Avant Gardner the second largest entertainment venue in Brooklyn.

Avant Gardner’s indoor arena boasts three different-sized rooms, each with unique accoutrements that range from oversized chandeliers to stained glass and motorised rigs.

The latter boasts immersive 360-degree visuals, which are cast against winding staircases and balconies. Thus the exteriors of Avant Gardner bear the visage of a palace — a stark contrast to the structure’s blue-collar beginnings. 

New York State has announced that most COVID-19 restrictions are lifted immediately as 70 percent of New Yorkers aged 18 or older have received the first dose of their COVID-19 vaccination series. ⁠

Based on this new state policy, attendees will no longer be required to present proof of vaccination or a negative test in order to attend any of Avant Gardner’s upcoming shows.⁠
