The epic night out included two special surprise Broadway Plus performances by Storm Lever and Daniel Quadrino.
Nebula will host world-class DJs spanning the spectrum of electronic music, from underground trailblazers to stadium-filling superstars, establishing a home base for nightlife and dance culture in NYC. Paving the way for New York City’s nightlife renaissance this fall, Nebula will kick off its grand opening weekend on Friday, November 5th with DJ Makj headlining.

No expense or detail was spared in the creation of this spacious venue with a capacity for 700. Nebula has an incredible 5,500 square foot dance floor, 2,500 square feet mezzanine level, and 3,000 square foot lower level with three private club rooms dedicated to private groups, complete with their own dedicated bathrooms, whether it’s for an over-the-top karaoke night, a seated dinner for 20 or mini dance party with your closest friends.
Named for a cloud of dust in outer space that’s visible in the night sky, Nebula takes its cues from the interstellar, the club’s visionary design transports guests into otherworldly immersive environments. Nebula will provide a transformative nightlife experience that blends cutting-edge technology and world-class hospitality. There will be a philosophy of love and care that embodied famed Manhattan venues of yesteryear, which transformed for their patrons week to week.
Nebula’s unbelievable, movable ceiling gives the club and event space the ability to transform each time the doors open. The ceiling is composed of six massive video panels, which are able to move and tilt individually or come together to form an incredible, venue-spanning screen, allowing patrons to dance under anything from a cosmic night sky to hypnotic, rhythmic pulsing lights. This technology is like nothing guests have ever seen before, ensuring a captivating visual experience every night.
