Knitting Factory Really Moving to Brooklyn?

The speculation continues as to whether the [Knitting Factory], time-honored and supercheap New York music club, is pulling up its stakes in search of greener pastures—or Brooklyn (but whatever).


According to a [recent post on brooklynvegan], a sign on the door of the now-defunct music club Luna Lounge in Williamsburg indicates that the spot could be turned into a Knitting Factory. Whether this means that the current KF in Tribeca will be closing is unclear.


[ Additional rumors have been flying since February] as to whether KF plans to open a location uptown to E. 14th Street at Avenue A. The gossip began in response to the folks at the Knitting Factory applying for liquor licenses at both the East Village and Williamsburg addresses.


Like the Knitting Factory, Luna Lounge was located in Manhattan until 2005 but had to relocate after its building was sold. It now appears to be gone for good. Could it be that 361 Metropolitan Avenue is where music venues go to die? Don’t go into the light, Knitting Factory!


When reached for comment, representatives at the Knitting Factory wouldn't confirm or deny any future plans for the club.
