What to make of the Country Club, the lounge that Guest of a Guest reports will open next Wednesday in the short-lived Dirty Disco’s space at 248 W. 14th Street? According to a press release, it’ll be a “contemporary interpretation of classic clubhouse lounges found in early 20th century country clubs throughout the United States and Great Britain.” Designer Jeanie Ziering says she was inspired by a vision of “the Rolling Stones recording an album at a traditional English Manor and the environment that would be left upon the album’s completion.” There will indeed be live music at the venue, as well as D.J.’s, of course. The menu, meanwhile, will consist of Truffled Grilled Cheese, “Pigs in a Blanket” Lollipops, and a variety of flavored popcorn such as Sweet Georgia Pecan and Chocolate Chunk & Caramel. Gourmet popcorn aside, this place sounds like a replay of Manor nearby, but we’ll wait to see how it comes together. When we peeked in earlier this week it was still under construction.
