Village Voice's Description

This Obie Award-winning Off-Off-Broadway venue hosts an expansive range of shows. Dixon Place is devoted to presenting exclusively original works of theater, performance art, dance, music, comedy, and literary readings. The Paris salon-inspired space opened in 1985, and is now a leading space for experimental work. It is located close to the ultra-condensed bars, restaurants, and clubs that make for a bustling nightlife scene on the Lower East Side, but it more reflects the 'hood's pre-gentrification spirit and grassroots aesthetics. In addition to the stage, it also features a gallery of rotating artists, and an intimate lounge featuring a full bar and entertainment.

Merchant's Description

Dixon Place serves you right! We are committed to assisting artists in a friendly and professional manner, and providing a living, breathing laboratory theatre for audiences. Dixon Place's mission, history, and staff have made it a local haven for creativity, as well as an international model for the open exploration of the process of creation.

Tips from foursquare

  • Little Lord Theater on 09/09/13

    Home to one of our favorite evenings of performances, Little Theatre, usually the second Monday of the month. Be sure to buy a reasonably-priced drink at the bar to support indie arts programming!

  • A.R.T./New York on 01/24/12

    The bar at Dixon Place is a great to have a laid-back drink on the LES. Enjoy happy hour prices all night with every 2nd check-in and peruse their fab collection of photos of downtown theatre icons.

  • Elizabeth O. on 05/04/10

    Chill venue for a good cause.

  • Metromix on 04/15/10

    Try a two-for-one happy hour every Monday through Friday (6 to 7 p.m.)

  • Ben C. on 03/06/10

    See a Puppet Blok performance!
