The Pyramid Club NYC is located in the East Village of Manhattan in New York City. Opened in 1979, the Pyramid Club NYC helped define the East Village gay and drag scene in the 80's.

In the early 80's, the struggling artists, actors, musicians, and drag queens who lived in the East Village created their own, more intimately-scaled scene. The club became a hangout for drag performers like Lypsinka, Lady Bunny, and RuPaul, whose first New York City show was at the Pyramid Club NYC in 1982. On Labor Day 1985, Pyramid performer Lady Bunny hosted the Wigstock Festival in Tompkins Square Park. Andy Warhol and Debbie Harry dropped in the Pyramid to do a feature on the club for MTV, and Madonna appeared at her first AIDS benefit at the club. Both Nirvana and Red Hot Chili Peppers played their first New York City concerts at the Pyramid Club NYC.

On October 9, 2012, the building, built in 1876, became a landmark, and part of the Historic District in the East Village.

The Pyramid Club NYC remains to this day devoted to providing our patrons the full 80's experience by hosting weekly 80's Dance Parties and supporting 80's artists while on tour. We're a "come as you are" dance club, and welcome everyone.
