Vinyl Music Hall is a music venue and bar planned to open on the first floor of the Masonic. It will be the first tenant to occupy the historic 1897 building in many years.

Development[edit]

The Levin Group, which owns the Masonic, has partnered with the owners of nearby Hopjacks to develop the project. The club will accommodate approximately 400 people, filling a mid-sized venue niche for live acts that are too large for club like Sluggo's and not big enough for the Civic Center. The decision to open during a recession economy was conspicuous, but according to Corey Fogarty, "We all agree that it is the perfect time to launch this. Our entire group feels that Hopjacks has proven that a restaurant/bar can thrive in slow economic times if it is unique and operated ethically and with quality."[1]
