Free Space for Hire

In a city where rents are higher than the Empire State building, space is at a premium in NYC. It’s hard to imagine a slew of empty banquet halls and apartments, but alas, they do exist, if not for long. Eventup, a west-coast born company that aims to be “the AirBNB of event spaces”, is transforming idle, tenant-free clubs/apartments/etc into the spot for your next party.

For a pittance (~$200-$400) you can host the rooftop shindig of the year for fifty people in Midtown Manhattan. The space at left comes with a studio apartment and leases for $250 7 days a week.

Some properties not only great views, but storied former tenants, including Bob Dylan and Lady Gaga. Now how’s that for an opening line?
