Membership-based private social club and music venue Pershing Hall is expanding its service, opening some of its events to the public for the first time starting this weekend.

The Pershing, a low-profile but highly-coveted luxury club tucked away on East 5th Street and Pedernales, is the watering hole of some of Austin's most famous creatives and elites. It opened in 2018 as a membership-only club and has accrued 350 members as of last year.

It plans on hosting over 150 events in the rest of 2022, starting with a Friday night show featuring Clarence James, Moody Bank$ and Vace. Pershing has a partnership with Black Fret musicians to keep the good tunes rolling.

Pershing is also home to a monthly residency from Austin’s own Bob Schneider, which will sell tickets to members first before opening them up to the public.

In addition to opening its doors to the public, Pershing says it is “committed to supporting all forms of art and artists” by:

    • Partnering with West Chelsea Contemporary to present live art, including work from Bill Tavis that will also be displayed at Pershing Hall.
    • A new commercial kitchen and chef will expand the menu to include a wagyu beef Pershing burger, wild striped bass and ribeye with Japanese sweet potato.
    • Offering new incentives for national musicians to perform at the venue.
