ON THE SCENE: Finding A Pop-Up Location in NYC

Pop-ups are popping up all over town with brands and bands (lots of bands!) creating immersive experiences to engage consumers. With activations going beyond the traditional storefront to convenience stores and museums, scouting the perfect spot can be overwhelming. So we turned to the space source - Splacer - to find out their top picks of pop-up locations.


Located in Greenpoint Brooklyn, this spacious start-up office is easily accessible by train or ferry. Large windows allow for tons of natural lighting and expansive views of Manhattan. With exposed brick, high ceilings, and unique artist designed furniture it’s an amazing environment for start-ups and pop-ups.


Transform this intimate gallery space to fit the needs of your next pop-up. Located in a hip and upcoming neighborhood of the Lower East Side, it’s got the right amount of style and charm to impress your guests.


This raw industrial space located in the center of the Lower East Side offers large windows, high ceilings, and boasts a massive 5,000 sq. foot floor space. The building is a leading venue for major retailer exhibitions and creative industry events.


The space is ideal for productions looking for a central location for staging in the surrounding area of iconic Dumbo. The space itself is a stunning location, with dramatic shadows during the daytime, industrial fixtures and modern raw cement floors. It’s a unique venue for all types of special events, both public and private.


Make your next pop-up stand out with this stunning Historical Cast-Iron Building in SoHo. The compelling cast-iron facade coupled with the four levels of empty sun-soaked space makes for a truly elegant environment. Distinct glass-tiled floor designs, marble details, and large windows will surely invigorate a sense of mood and energy.


Delight your guests with the designer details of this historic Williamsburg, Brooklyn townhouse. A Bertazzoni oven and cooktop, chic marble Mangiarotti dining table, and Ladies and Gentlemen Studio lighting are bound to impress. The space is also  highly configurable and can accommodate various events such as pop up shops and art openings.
