A Gritty New Rock Palace on the Westside

Your presence is requested on the Westside. Over by the railroad tracks.

There’s an old iron foundry out there.

The kind of place where back-alley hands get dealt and clandestine meetings happen in the shadows.

Nah, not really. It’s more of a new concert venue in a really old warehouse-y building.

But still...

Take a long, hard look at Terminal West, your new home for late-night rooftop cocktailing and trackside concert-going, selling tickets now for their first preview show this Friday.

This is one of those places that makes you feel at least eight times more Nucky Thompson-ish just for walking in—centuries-old exposed brick. Concrete floors. Steel beams dripping from a towering ceiling.

To your left: a bar. To your right: another bar. And just toward the back and up the stairs... yet another bar. Only that third one is of the alfresco variety and happens to sit directly on top of the train tracks.

Go to her.

It’s the perfect spot to dangle a can of Young’s Double Chocolate Stout over the railing and watch the trains go by while you wait for the first band to fire up. The first few shows are mostly DJ/dubstep-y, but expect plenty of local and indie rockers to grace the stage in the coming months.

You can grace the bars in the meantime.
