At 5075 Lancaster Ave in West Philly, there’s a space just waiting to become the next great hidden-gem concert and event venue in the city. An old factory complex big enough to accommodate thousands of partygoers is being transformed, room by room, into a modern event space!
The Major Event Entertainment Complex is a building with its own private 80-space parking lot and three stories of great rooms. On the first floor, there’s a huge commercial kitchen with three deep fryer baskets, a commercial sink, two smaller prep sinks, two refrigerators, and a freezer unit — ample space to prepare food even for the largest parties. There’s also a main room on that floor that could be used as an auxiliary space for a lot of different types of events: it would make the perfect dressing area for a fashion show, or it could serve as a bar section for larger parties, maybe even a buffet area.
Then there’s the second floor — a party space with spectacular potential. The central corridor has been redone with cool vintage-feel wallpaper. It’s a great space in and of itself, roomy with the great extra touch of a stage at the end of the hall. It also leads into several other spaces. First there’s the VIP Room, with a pleasant cool wall color, which opens onto the bi-level outdoor VIP Deck, a massive roof deck space. The rest of the second floor is occupied with the Sports Room and the Alcove Room — both spacious event rooms with an industrial-chic feel.
On the third floor there’s the Grand Room, illuminated by a wall of windows, with access to yet a THIRD roof deck space. There’s also the Red Room, tucked to the side of the Grand Room, which has beautiful exposed beams and brick walls painted bright red. Each of these spaces accommodates hundreds; together, they create a building with the capacity to accommodate up to 5,000 in a multi-tiered event space fit for a blockbuster.
We love this space! The possibilities are already endless, and lots of renovations are also in the works for this great space. The Sports Room, currently a blank canvas of a room with low-hung vintage lamps, wooden floors, exposed brick walls, and lots of natural light, will soon be fitted out as a sports bar. So stay tuned for great developments in this space!
