4 Great Things About The Ante Room:

Founded in July 2012 by Jeyon Falsini of Magnus Music, LLC as an extension of the Main Street Arena (aka Ice Park) and dubbed “The Main Street Annex”, his vision was to create a space for the often overlooked local musicians and dance party promoters. What was once a clothing store soon transformed into a fully functional music venue hosting Charlottesville’s newest bands, local favorites, and touring regional acts. In April 2015, the Annex opened it’s own kitchen became an independent business out from under the Arena and changed it’s name to The Ante Room. Featuring a modular stage, PA system to satisfy the any style band or DJ you could imagine. Today the Ante Room offers a full bar, comfortable seating, and a delicious food menu featuring popular American fare and unique Carribean Fusion cuisine.
