City Winery opened its massive flagship space on Pier 57 last fall (and now there’s a public rooftop park above it!), and the music venue & wine bar/restaurant’s newest location has just been revealed as none other than Midtown transportation hub Grand Central Station.
According to an exclusive in Crain’s New York Business detailing MTA records, the new space will span 15,888 square feet and will be located on the western end of Vanderbilt Hall, where the Great Northern Food Hall once lived.
It will include three different areas from a gastropub to a bar/restaurant to a grab-and-go food option.
Like its other locations, the spots will reportedly offer live music and “cabaret seating around a small pedestal,” along with a “farm-to-table menu [and] their unique selection of wine with ambient background music,” according to the reviewed agreement with the MTA.
The records also revealed the space rental will last three years, with the option to renew for another two years if desired.
If you’re wondering how the entertainment will affect commuting, the MTA will actually conduct sound tests with different musicians to make sure rush hour travelers can still properly hear train announcements! Overall, only ensembles of up to four musicians will be allowed.
