Hipp deck: Pop-up rooftop performance venue & book release party

Can a parking garage become more than just a car storage facility?

Join us for an urban experiment called the Hipp Deck. The one night event will transform the top level of the 740 Euclid parking garage (between the City Club and the 668 Building) into an open-air live performance venue and green space, providing a much needed public oasis with fantastic views of surrounding Downtown Cleveland.

The parking garage is on the site of the former Hippodrome Theater, a nationally renown live performance venue, which was demolished in 1981. The Hipp Deck, a conjunction of Hippodrome and parking deck, will bring the illustrious past of the theater back to life, for one night, with performances from local and national music acts.

The event will also feature the book release of the CUDC's fourth volume of the Urban Infill journal, "Cleveland Stories: True Until Proven Otherwise".

Please join us for an exciting evening of entertainment, storytelling, and history making. More to come on the amazing performance lineup soon!

The event is organized by the Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative with support from the George Gund Foundation, Cuyahoga Arts & Culture, Historic Gateway Neighborhood Corporation and Ampco System Parking.
