If you dream it,
we can host it!

A meeting for 20? Cocktails for 75? Late night party for 120? Oh! A full-blown show, you say?

No problem! Our multi-purpose spaces can do it all.



Located in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen at 511 West 54th Street, and convenient to all of midtown, Ars Nova can provide a modern, luxuriously appointed Loft space, as well as a sleek ‘n sexy FLEX Theater for all of your rental needs! And if you’re looking for a space downtown, look no further than our 199-seat flexible theater in the West Village, the Greenwich House Theater. We rent our space at competitive rates for a variety of events, rehearsals and activities. Non-profit discounts are available. All rental revenue directly funds Ars Nova’s mission of supporting new and emerging artists. 


The Ars Nova Fling program is Ars Nova’s unique way of interacting with producers and artists who are interested in more than just a “four-wall” rental of our theater and green room. It’s geared towards multi-week productions, workshops and developmental activities. Rentals participating in the Fling program can select from a menu of consultation and select services from Ars Nova’s in-house marketing, general and production management departments, artistic consultation, as well as the opportunity to bill their production as “An Ars Nova Fling” occurring at “Theater 511.”
