White Eagle Hall in Downtown Jersey CityBY Editor, December 26, 2017
A newly restored and renovated historic theater located in Downtown Jersey City, White Eagle Hall, presents live music, theatre, comedy, dance, film, family shows as well as other performances. Along with great music, they have three bars where guests can purchase food and drinks while they enjoy the show. On the ground level of the venue are two popular restaurants, Madame Claude Bis and Cellar335.
WEH was designed with the latest sound technology, creating a nearly echo-free atmosphere with enhanced aural clarity. The LED Theatrical lights feature state-of-the-art intelligent lighting, but also have analog dimming flexibility for “old school” lighting effects. Every concert goer will leave impressed with their sound and lightening and they have already hosted some popular bands such as Misterwives and The Early November.
The White Eagle Hall opened in 1910 and in 1934, it became St. Anthony’s. The parish managed the venue throughout the 20th century – in addition to church-related and other community activities. Once you enter the venue you’ll notice their beautiful ceiling with two spectacular, hand-crafted stain-glass skylights – one commemorating Frédéric Chopin, the classical music composer, and the other Marcella Sembrich, an internationally renowned opera star who sang 11 seasons with New York Metropolitan Opera.
White Eagle Hall restoration project followed the latest in sustainable building practices, repurposing materials from the original construction by Ben LoPiccolo Development Group, LLC (BLDG) and its restoration was completed in 2016. In 2017, The Jersey City Landmarks Conservancy awarded its 2017 Excellence in Preservation Award for the restoration of White Eagle Hall, as a historic theater and public assembly venue.
