MORE ABOUT THE MELROSE BALLROOM:
Located in the heart of Long Island City just minutes away from Manhattan, Melrose Ballroom is one of New York City’s premiere exclusive venues for live performance, music, and entertainment shows.
Melrose Ballroom is located at: 36-08 33rd Street Long Island City, NY 11106 95014.
Powell’s POV: It’s great to see MLW run in a new location. All of their modern era shows have been held in Orlando, Florida’s GILT Nightclub thus far, so it will be cool to see them run in in a different venue and play to a different audience.
