An Intimate, Unique, Professional Space
Re-opening Summer 2022!
Just around the corner from The Music Hall Historic Theater, The Lounge offers the same fabulous on and off stage amenities but in a contemporary intimate setting for just about 100 guests.
The Music Hall unveils plans for the new “The Music Hall Lounge” that includes a major overhaul of their smaller venue
The theater space formerly known as “The Loft” is being entirely renovated in downtown Portsmouth
The Music Hall’s Executive Director Tina Sawtelle says, “Over the years we have heard from our patrons that they want a dynamic, comfortable space that allows for more social interaction among our guests and between the performing artists and audience. This renovation will enable us to attract and accommodate emerging artists, local talent, comedians, authors, and more. And it will also greatly improve our rental capability.”
The stage of the 100-seat venue will be visible from the street, welcoming passersby to see the action inside. The Music Hall is working with Studio KL and Market Street Architects on the project. Principal Rob Harbeson says the big difference people will notice is the versatility of the space; “The Music Hall Lounge will have a modern, mercantile feel to it with updated lighting and audiovisual equipment, in addition to many warm elements throughout the theater, including wood features, a fireplace, a variety of seating options, and big pops of color to create a real cabaret feel.”
