The Triad is located at 158 West 72nd Street in a non-descript building. According to the 1919 Certificate of Occupancy, this building has a bachelor apartment. “Not more than 15 rooms to be used for sleeping purposes” and “NOTE: Cooking in more than two of the apartments will render this building liable to immediate vacation by the Tenement House Department.” The building ironically housed restaurants/supper clubs for a few decades before becoming a theatre space which launched Forbidden Broadway in 1982 (formerly Palsson’s Supper Club).
The Triad Theater is a multi-purpose live entertainment venue that seats 120 patrons in a beautiful environment reminiscent of the movie palaces of the 1930s. Peter Martin, owner of The Triad, share that the theater is housed in a Brownstone from the 1890s and located on 72nd Street on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
