Hi. I’m Eric Grundhauser, Programming Lead for Atlas Obscura Experiences. I've been working and exploring with Atlas Obscura since we were just a handful of curiosity nerds working on a blog.
I've teamed up with a professional violinist living in New York City to bring this unique experience to NYC. She has played with all kinds of artists, from Miley Cyrus to Karen O, and living in this city has fostered her love of culture, music and adventure that we're excited to share with you!
For questions about this experience, please contact me directly through Airbnb.
Upon entering Von, walk toward the back and turn right towards the hallway. Your host will be waiting between the main bar and the seating area to check you in. We have a private bar in the basement so there’s no need to grab a drink before entering.
There are 10 spots available on this experience.
Guests ages 21 and up can attend.
Guests will need to go up and down a steeper staircase to reach the Lounge space at Von.
