About Providence Restaurant, Location of Kelley Blue Book's 2008 Brand Image Awards Event:
Kelley Blue Book's 2008 Brand Image Awards event will be held at Providence Restaurant located in the heart of Manhattan, a "landmark space with a rock star past." Formerly the Manhattan Baptist Church in the 1920s-60s, the space later became the world-famous Media Sound Studios, where influential albums from the likes of The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, John Lennon, Aerosmith, and more were recorded throughout the 1970s-80s. In the 1990s, the space transformed again into Le Bar Bat, a staple on the Manhattan nightlife scene. Today, Providence Restaurant tastefully bridges old and new, with its cathedral ceiling still in-tact, interpretations of classic album covers from the music recorded there adorning the walls, and serving Coastal European fare with an American twist.
