Apollo Theater

Established in 1934, the legendary Harlem Theater has housed some of music’s most talented performers in the world.

Designated a national landmark, the Apollo has launched the careers of icons such as Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, James Brown, and Lauryn Hill and continues to maintain its position as the nation’s most popular arena for emerging and established African-American and Latino performers.

The Apollo has three unique spaces for you to host your event: the Mainstage, the Soundstage, and the Lobby Atrium (all of which are included in the Apollo rental).
