Charlotte’s First Tango-Inspired Event Space Just Opened in Plaza Midwood

Charlotte’s first tango-inspired event space just opened in Plaza Midwood.

Built by Charlotte performing artist Matthew Seneca and former Charlotte Ballet principal dancer Sarah Hayes Harkins, The Long Room was born out of a shared desire to create a place in Charlotte where the arts can flourish, creativity is fostered, and moments are celebrated.

Seneca and Harkins perceived a need in Charlotte for artistic spaces that can accommodate a variety of uses—spaces that are not hyper-specialized, but are nonetheless high-quality and can be used by different creative people in different ways. By channeling their passion for the arts, elegance and style, Seneca and Harkins transformed a historic 1953 building into an exquisite event venue that fuses an industrial energy with warmth and charm.

The 2,800 square foot space has 20′ ceilings, a wrap-around balcony bar, 642 square feet of dance floor, stocked bar, full-sized kitchen, and a total capacity of 150 people (but Seneca said the sweet spot is around 80).

The Long Room’s meticulously designed sprung hardwood dance floor, soaring ceilings and dramatic viewing balcony provide an energetic platform for artistic expression and set the stage for unforgettable experiences.
