Echostage is Washington, DC’s largest nightlife concert venue. Formerly known as DC Tunnel and DC Star, the building was taken over in September 2012 by a group led by Panorama Productions and Club Glow.
Renovations began immediately to equip the 30,000+ sq. ft. space for large-scale, live music events.
The main focus of ownership has been on the venue’s layout and production. Top tier sound design, advanced LED visual displays and unobstructed sight lines throughout the venue provide an atmosphere unmatched on the east coast.
(2) 60 ft. bars run along each side of the dance floor and a photo pit provides close-up views in front of the stage. The back of the room features a raised “front of house” booth where an expert production team controls the show.
Stairwells in the back corners of the dance floor lead to VIP. Mezzanines over-looking the dance floor run along each side of the room and host over (30) bottle service areas. Each mezzanine houses (1) bar and each bottle service area comfortably accommodates (8) people.
A smoking area exists in front of the venue with access coming from the back corner of the main floor next to the merchandise stand. Men’s and women’s bathrooms are located on each side of the dance floor through hallways that allow for easy crowd flow.
While the bulk of Echostage events involve Glow’s massive dance music DJ-events, the venue was renovated to be an all purpose venue made to host live bands, MC’s and any other event requiring a large-scale stage production.
The Panorama Productions family includes nightclubs, bars, restaurants, lounges and now DC’s largest, dedicated concert venue.
