The Bowery Presents
New York City-based The Bowery Presents has launched a concert venue with room for 525 people at 52 Church Street. Harvard Square hasn't had a large, live rock music venue since The House of Blues closed in 2003. The nearby Club Passim is a smaller, more intimate music venue that's been around since 1958.
The restaurant/concert venue has been plaued with delays and has been forced to push back its opening date from November to January and cancel shows. The concert hall finally hosted its first show in December.
Michael Schlow, the chef behind Boston restaurants Radius and Happy’s, has also been brought in as a consultant for the restaurant.
