We are sad to announce that The Vista Room has closed permanently.
On Mar 10th we laid off 20 of 25 staff members, canceled all shows, and cooked and served take-out meals from our sister restaurant Napoleon's Grill, which has remained viable on a shoestring for 90 days, and we expect that to continue.
As an independent, we simply cannot sustain the massive overheard losses, which will now run thru at least August (6 months) and even then, judging by the surprising lack of attendance at Restaurants & Gyms the last month, people will hesitate to come until 2021.
Without operating at capacity both the performers and the venues lose too much to make it viable. We have discussed this with our landlord and they have two new strong prospective tenants looking at taking the space. (Sorry Non-Music Venue Tenants).
We enjoyed 4 years of effort from hard work, passion & fun believing in our mission of a unique music venue focused on the BEST hospitality from our incredible staff for both the Audiences and the Artists alike. Backed with high-quality restaurant food & service, and performances supported by the top sound and production techs in the city plus a wide spectrum of great live music, comedy and events!
The Vista Room didn’t fail – we were squashed by a bug! But we are all alive and moving on down new trails as the world deals with Covid19.
Thank you to everyone that came and played – you were all magnificent! Until we meet again, keep your chest out, head up, and see you on the other side!
