Since opening on New Year’s Eve 1919, the Roseland has played host to Charleston-crazed flappers in the twenties, dime-a-dance hustlers during the Great Depression, Lindy-bopping swingers up through World War II, and saddle-shoed bobby-soxers in the fifties. Today, ballroom is a haven for indie rockers, mosh pits, and eardrum-shattering amps, although once in a while megastars like Metallica or The Rolling Stones will up their street cred by playing this 3,500 standing-room only venue. The space itself recalls an era of black-tie Friday nights and posh society parties. Hardwood floors, an elevated concert stage, and a room-circling balcony give this relatively small venue a classy sense of intimacy absent in most arenas. When the hall gets decked out for a special event, the entire venue gets a full makeover to suit the occasion—be it a tattoo convention or a Versace runway show, a slam dancing marathon or a professional boxing match.House Rules
