Don’t Miss This Year’s Indoor Block Party & Fundraiser, Open Market, In The Meatpacking District


The Meatpacking District Business Improvement District is excited to announce their 5th annual ‘indoor block party’ and fundraiser, Open Market, on March 8, 2018 from 6:30pm – 10:30pm at Highline Stages. Join hosts Diane von Furstenberg, Founder and Co-Chairman of DVF; Andrew Rosen, Founder and CEO of Theory; and Mazdack Rassi, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Milk for a grand-scale food and cocktail tasting from 25 area restaurants and bars, live DJ sets by Coco & Breezy, a silent auction, and access to an exclusive sample sale from over 10 district retailers.


Serving as the unofficial kickoff to the spring seasons, attendees can indulge in every aspect of the iconic neighborhood, all under one roof. The venue will feature two distinct floors allowing ticket holders to leisurely stroll through participating businesses, booth to booth, while shopping their favorite brands and enjoying small bites and great cocktails.

VIP tickets are available ($350) which offer early access to shop the same sales, an exclusive experience created by the iconic Soho House, a buy-it-now option for the silent auction, the ultimate gift bag, and guaranteed access to the VIP after party at TAO Downtown.
