About the venue:
Meridian 23 is a club with a bit of a utopian streak. Born from a long collaborative friendship between two alums of NYC’s UN International School with cross-cultural backgrounds, the new venue in Chelsea aims to incubate some of the city’s most vibrant but orphaned scenes. With excellent sound, a sophisticated yet warm vibe, and an open ear and eye for eclectic creativity, Meridian 23 hopes to be the kind of artistic hub that many clubs with attitude have been in NYC.
