Wonderland, the new nightclub and adult nightlife venue officially opened in Chelsea at 20 West 20th Street with a grand opening party hosted by Rick Ross, as well as sword swallower Le Reine The Thrill and ax juggler Sam Urdang.

This exciting new venue combines a high-energy big-room NYC nightclub experience, with the very finest in after-dark entertainment. Wonderland features live stage acts of all kinds, celebrity guest hosts, bottle service and a mezzanine for guests to dine at.

Wonderland is poised to set the precedent in the industry for years to come. Opening weekend will include former NFL star turned rapper Antonio Brown on April 28th and a headlining DJ set Diplo on Friday, April 29th.

Wonderland is run by Twenty West Partners, who have over 25 years of experience in nightlife and adult entertainment in New Jersey, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. The team is led by Creative Director Richie Romero, who is one of the forces behind Nebula nightclub, Hidden Lane, Temakase, Innocent Yesterday and Zazzy’s Pizza.

Wonderland was created and designed by SBS Slammer by SBS Designs. The Hybrid SBS Slammer for Wonderland combines today’s state-of-the-art Class AB Amplification that is completely hand-made to spec by SBS Designs with no off the shelf parts, and offers High end Analog Processing by SBS Slammer & SBS Designs offering the widest frequency response on the market, with the best vintage front end preamp to add full control and unique texture in the voicing of playback, so it provides the sweetest and most musical offering that’s also easy on the ears.

The DJ booth offers high end state-of-the-art Denon hardware with 2 SC6000 media players and x1850 mixer with SBS Modified Italian RCF 2 way monitors powered by a SBS Designs S4 Class A + AB amplifier with 950 watts of pure power to offer the DJs a reference of how the floor sounds to never miss a beat.

The venue was formerly owned by singer and songwriter husband and wife duo Ashford & Simpson and was called 20/20 before morphing into the VIP Room in the mid-90’s and now Wonderland in 2022.

The main stage is the focal point at Wonderland with two 12-foot video LED video walls with mirrored pillars throughout, trace lighting above and a mezzanine to catch the action from any angle.

Just under 10,000 square feet, with a capacity for 300 guests over two floors. There will also be a private members-only speakeasy opening later in 2022.

The venue features small plates like Truffle Butter Popcorn, Guacamole & Chips, Baja Quesadillas, a Charcuterie Board showcasing imported meat, cheese, olives and seasonal fruits, Smoked Brisket Empanadas, a Freshly Baked Jumbo Pretzel, Chicken Fingers & Fries, Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls and Wagyu Cheeseburger Sliders with cheddar cheese on a brioche bun. That’s in addition to a full bar and bottle service menu.
