Ritz (The), New York City, NY

The Ritz was a New York City rock club in the 1980s and early 1990s, founded in 1980 by Jerry Brandt in the historic Webster Hall ballroom and concert space on 11th Street between Third and Fourth Avenues in the East Village neighborhood of New York City. The address was 119 E 11th Steet. The Ritz focused primarily on live performances, often of newer acts, but also featured dancing. The Ritz was one of the first clubs to incorporate video screens into the club experience with a 30' screen and a projector which cost $120,000. MTV made its debut at The Ritz. The Ritz moved in the late 1980s to the site of the former Studio 54.
