The popular David Barton Gym announced recently that in the fall of 2014 it’s going to move into the Limelight in Chelsea and convert the iconic space into a 20,000-square-foot workout destination.

The Church of the Holy Communion and Buildings was constructed in the grand Gothic Revival style back in 1846 by architect Richard Upjohn and fell to a changing city in the 1970s. The former “King of NYC nightlife” Peter Gatien set up shop in the early eighties and Andy Warhol hosted the opening of the Limelight club in November of 1983.

Mick Jagger celebrated his 40th Birthday at the club and performers like RuPaul, Amanda Lepore, and Jay-Z joined bands like Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails for exclusive and legendary performances at the intimate and surprising space.
