Bell House and Union Hall Staff Fund

Last week, both The Bell House and Union Hall were forced to close their doors due to the Coronavirus pandemic.  Like all New Yorkers, we are struggling to meet the day to day challenges of this new reality. Employees in the bar, restaurant and live event industries were hit especially hard by this mandated shutdown.  

Since then, we have had to lay off over 50 staff members.  These are the people who help make The Bell House and Union Hall two of New York City’s most memorable live event venues; from our amazing bartender and barback staff, to our skilled sound techs, to the smiling faces of our door staff!  These are the people who are being most impacted by this devastating turn of events.

We know that everyone is affected by these terrible circumstances but we are hoping that you might be in a position to help.  100% of funds raised will go directly to the bartenders and barbacks, floor managers, sound techs, door and ticketing staff, and porters.  

Thank you for your support!  We are anxious to open our doors soon and get back to business as usual!  We look forward to seeing you soon!
