Welcome to Perelman Performing Arts Center (PAC NYC). In addition to the exciting artistic programming that we present and produce in our theaters, we also present year-round programming including free and Pay-What-You-Want entertainment ranging from family friendly performances on the Clare and Vartan Gregorian Lobby Stage to thought provoking events developed with our programming partners. An original concept restaurant by Chef Marcus Samuelsson (opening in Fall 2023), a public bar and outdoor terrace provide exciting new gathering spaces for you to enjoy while in Lower Manhattan. We invite you to our lobby and restaurant spaces before or after a show, for a lunch or coffee meeting, or at happy hour. Our Space is Your Space.
Come see a performance in our theaters, which can be used individually or combined to accommodate artistic innovation and engage audiences in new ways at every visit:
John E. Zuccotti Theater (seating up to 450 people)
Mike Nichols Theater (seating up to 250)
Doris Duke Theater (seating up to 99)
PAC NYC will be home to the latest restaurant from visionary chef Marcus Samuelsson (of Red Rooster, Hav & Mar).
Designed by Rockwell Group, Metropolis by Marcus Samuelsson opens fall 2023 and will offer a warm and welcoming dining and lounge experience, including a bar and outdoor terrace, throughout PAC NYC’s lobby level. The menu draws inspiration from the diversity of the five boroughs defined by generations of immigrants and honors the convergence of cultures throughout the great city of New York.
Starting September 19 the Marcus Samuelsson Restaurant Group will offer refreshments and light fare in the future Metropolis dining room from two hours before and following performances. See the pre-opening offerings here
As the final piece of the rebuilding of the World Trade Center, PAC NYC joins neighboring cultural institutions including the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. Learn more about our neighborhood and our neighbors on the Downtown Alliance website.
