New to the Flatiron district, Twelve21 has a stage, a full prep kitchen, and greenroom, coat check and storage areas. The fully equipped venue features a variety of amenities, including sound and lighting equipment, rigging outlets in the ceiling, a mobile DJ unit, a freight elevator, and private access between the stage and the greenroom.

Twelve21 offers distinguished clients a beautifully renovated event space with an array of cleverly conceived and high-tech amenities.

The venue provides three avenues of access between the floors, plus private access to the talent suite via a hidden spiral staircase behind the stage.
