The idea of a party in a gallery might bring to mind stuffy artistes sipping wine in a conspicuously dance-free environment. The truth couldn’t be more different when it comes to parties at Gallery Lombardi, a space that’s become increasingly popular for private (and public) parties over the past year. Anything but stuffy, parties at this place have been known to get downright rowdy. The large open floorplan has ample room for live bands to set up, and the gallery’s Warehouse District location is remote enough that you can turn it up to 11. Parties often spill out of the space’s garagelike doors and into the street, and we’ve even heard of partygoers dancing on the tops of stopped freighter trains (though of course, we don’t condone such risky behavior).
