Space Park was born out of a necessity to devise a new way to experience live music. When the opportunity arose to lease a large patch of land, Elad Zvi and Gabe Orta, founders of Bar Lab, a consulting and hospitality company best known for the Broken Shaker, partnered with Space’s owners Sinopoli, Coloma Kaboomsky, and Davide Danese. Bar Lab will lead the park’s beverage program while the Space crew will handle the bookings, but all events will be a joint effort between the two teams.
Space Park will debut on New Year’s Eve with the Ukraine techno duo Artbat and DJ/producer Rony Seikaly at the helm, followed by Nii Tei and Club Space resident Ms. Mada’s back-to-back set. Bedouin and Eduardo Castillo are set to take over the decks on Saturday, January 2. For the time being, Space Park will strictly enforce safety guidelines — facemasks and temperature checks are required, attendance will be limited to 25 percent occupancy, and the oak tree-pocked venue will comply with the city’s curfew: 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. for New Year’s Eve and 3 p.m. until midnight thereafter.
