The owners of the Blue Note, the legendary jazz club, are opening a new club in the meatpacking district of Manhattan that will be devoted to Latin music and world music, the Blue Note Entertainment Group announced Monday. The club, Subrosa, at 63 Gansevoort Street, will present a preview concert Wednesday night by the Pedrito Martínez Group, which will become a resident ensemble at the club with several shows every month.

Subrosa will have its grand opening in December, its management said, but besides the preview the club has announced performances by the Pascual New Flamenco Trio (Friday), more concerts by the Martínez Group (Nov. 19, 20), a tribute to the Buena Vista Social Club by José Gomez, also known as Pepito (Nov. 21, 27, 28) and performances in December by Mr. Martínez and company, Mr. Gomez and the Francisco Mela Son Quartet.

“We are opening Subrosa to provide a new creative hub for eclectic music, with an emphasis on Latin and world music disciplines,” Steven Bensusan, president of the Blue Note Entertainment Group said in a statement. “This space will ultimately serve as a destination for listeners to discover new globally influenced music in an accessible setting.”
