New music and events venue, The Jefferson, opens in Jeffersonville
Jeffersonville gets a new venue for music and events.
A project of Seven Four Events LLC of West Harrison, Indiana announced today that The Jefferson will open in Jeffersonville featuring national and local acts. The Jefferson will also serve as a venue for weddings, corporate events and other special events.
The Jefferson will occupy the large space formerly occupied by Rocky’s Italian Grill. The place has undergone major renovations. From 2021, “major renovations to transform the former restaurant into a music/events venue will be completed in the coming weeks. Indoor space totals over 9,000 square feet (including event space, BOH, and artist’s room/bridal suite). The space has been extensively modified to fit a venue and renovated from top to bottom. The existing bridge was demolished and a brand new bridge was built from scratch. The property now boasts over 4,000 square feet of outdoor deck and patio area, all with stunning views of Kentucky and the Louisville skyline.
In addition to the renovation of the space, “a high-end sound and light system is being installed”. Indoor concert capacity will be approximately 650 and the venue will have an outdoor patio capacity of approximately 400.
“Converting this space into a music and events venue was a fun and welcome challenge,” said DKGR Architects fellow Brian Schubert. “Our directive from Seven Four Events was to design The Jefferson with not just live music in mind; but also weddings and events. Creating an exceptional and tastefully decorated experience for spectators, performers and brides was also a must. I think everyone involved did a terrific job and I think we hit the mark.
The hall has already announced two of its upcoming concerts, including Save Abel August 27 and mud puddle the 11th of November. Other concerts are on the way and details will be announced in the coming weeks. The site also accepts reservations for other events.
“We are more than excited to bring a new, high-quality concert hall and event space to the Kentuckiana community,” said Stephen Bischoff, partner at The Jefferson. “We are passionate about providing the best possible experience for fans, artists, brides and everyone we will serve. We have an incredible list of confirmed shows that we are chomping at the bit to get everyone in on!”
The addition of a new concert hall moves the metro area forward in available space for concerts and events. It is also a welcome addition to the revitalization of Jeffersonville Riverfront. Highland Brewery is located next door, having opened in 2021. Upland will manage the restoration program for The Jefferson.
