Vision for this Venue

The Music Hall is reliant on the ongoing support of its members and sponsors to carry out its mission as a nonprofit arts and entertainment organization. As part of our ongoing commitment to ensure we deliver a first class patron experience, we are proud to expand our footprint to improve our food and beverage experience, which will provide greater enjoyment for all of our patrons. Members and sponsors will have the opportunity to enjoy this newly renovated space featuring an art deco, speakeasy feel and top-shelf cocktails and other first-class refreshments from McKeon’s Bar. While at the Club, members can relax in one of two lounge spaces, the Newburyport Bank Room or The Wentworth Room (named in honor of the Wentworth by the Sea, part of Opal Collection). Located directly next to the Historic Theater, guests can enter on Chestnut Street through an exclusive private entrance, and exit through the brand new passageway connecting the Members Club to the theater, making a transition between buildings seamless to ensure you never miss a beat!
