H&H Bagels, which was located on West 46th street, will soon be getting a massive face lift and a tremendous transformation. What was once a bagel factory will soon be a new event space with a unique feel and touch. The space will be massive and will be called Metropolitan West.
The grand opening of this 24,000 square foot venue is slated for the end of the year. The conceptual idea for the new venue space is to preserve as much of the original features of the building. This includes the natural brick walls and certain areas of the natural rust. Of course, the design will be spruced up and a complete face lift will be given. It is the hope that the opening of Metropolitan West will add to the recent transformation of the neighborhood. Over the next few years, there are plans of several night clubs and other event spaces to be opening in former factory buildings in the area. A complete new look with a historic touch may just be what the area needed.
Over a decade ago, Metropolitan Pavilion was opened in Chelsea by the same company who will be opening this new and exciting venue space. This second location will serve as an additional venue space with a different vibe and feel. Once redesigned the space will offer two different floors that boast 14- foot ceilings. Metropolitan West will be an ideal location for a variety of different events. Rooftop access will also be available for outdoor events.
