New York, NY
Flash Factory is an authentic, warm, and all-encompassing entertainment space built with organic architectural elements. A wall of 19th century doors, reclaimed from a convent, sit opposite a writhing tree sculpture that winds its way through a big top. Stained glass windows flank a bar adorned with artifacts sourced from a church in the Bronx. The main theater is crowned with custom-made arches, while seats in the lounge area are restored temple pews.
Flash Factory is a techno, live indie music, and nightlife venue. The venue is unlike any other, steeped in the NYC tradition of CBGBs and the Fillmore. Working with the architectural remains of congregational spaces, salvaged from New York City, Flash Factory stands in stark contrast to the electronic functionality of modern day joints. It is an homage to an era of vaudevillian eccentricity and Victorian decadence.
