THE BOX THE BOX is a new destination on the Lower East Side for fine dining and theater. THE BOX is located at 189 Chrystie Street, a 1935 two-story brick building between Stanton and Rivington Streets, with a stage door on Freeman Alley. One hundred years ago, this area was legendary for its vaudeville palaces, theaters and dime museums; THE BOX will bring the excitement and energy of those concert saloons and burlesque halls back to the neighborhood. THE BOX is an intimate restaurant and theater, with two bars and a stage. A flexible design and top-notch sound system allow us to present all types of live entertainment: bands, shows, parties, private functions, and special events.
