David Rubenstein Atrium

The David Rubenstein Atrium is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Since 2009, the David Rubenstein Atrium has served as a New York Privately Owned Public Space (POPS) operated by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.  Offering a lively gathering place for local residents as well as visitors, the Atrium features weekly free performances and a host of other amenities including a café, a discount ticket box office featuring TKTS tickets to Broadway shows, and more.

The facility is named in honor of the philanthropist, financier, and Vice Chairman of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts David Rubenstein, in recognition of his $10 million gift to the Bravo Campaign. The Tod Williams Billie Tsien design reflects a respect for the materials used throughout Lincoln Center and provides an open, accessible, and inviting environment. The Atrium is the first LEED certified, “green” building on the Lincoln Center campus.

Venue Accessibility Entrances on Broadway and Columbus Avenue are accessible through automatic doors. Accessible gender neutral restrooms on first and second floors.
