This fall, there will be two brand new music venues in Washington, D.C., both in the same neighborhood. This January, news broke that The Wharf would house The Anthem, owned by I.M.P. Productions, the same company that owns the 9:30 Club and operates the Lincoln Theatre. Now, officials from The Wharf developer Hoffman-Madison Waterfront confirm that there will be an additional music venue added, called Union Stage.
Behind the venue is the Brindley brothers, more specifically Daniel, Luke, and Jonathan, the same creators of Northern Virginia’s Jammin Java, which was named one of the Top 40 Music Venues in the Country by Paste Magazine, according to a press release.
Opening this fall, Union Stage will have a 450-person capacity. It will span 7,500 square feet and will offer rock concerts, acoustic shows, and large-scale private events.
In a statement, Daniel Brindley said, “We are excited to be able to use our 16 years of experience in this industry to bring D.C. a live music and concert experience for all ages. Union Stage is truly a realization of the power of music to bring people together, and we can’t wait to share it with everyone.”
The Wharf is a $2 billion, mile-long waterfront neighborhood that will boast brand new residential, retail, restaurant, office, and hotel space by the Potomac River waterfront.
