Your chance to experience a concert there happens to be tonight https://www.facebook.com/events/1929881870595490/

    16 of the Coolest, Most Unexpected Concert Venues Around the World | Architectural Digest

Perhaps there were a few chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, or maybe a red velvet curtain framing the stage; but otherwise, the space was probably unremarkable and easy to forget.
