The Midtown Lounge replaces the Spy Club
The Spy Club, a Russian-themed space upstairs from the Midtown Yacht Club (15 E. Centre St.), is being converted into a dance lounge called the Midtown Lounge, according to co-owner Greg Serio.
The Midtown Lounge will host informal '80s and '90s dance parties on Friday nights until the first of the year, when the lounge will officially reopen, Serio said. He has already started to update the decor.
"The Russian theme is pretty much gone, the second floor is totally redone and the third floor is being worked on," he said. ...
Except for private parties, the Spy Club has been dormant for about a year and a half now, Serio said. I remember blogging that the Spy Club was closed a few months ago, and being reprimanded for it by several commenters. Take that, naysayers.
I'm going to check out the Midtown Lounge in a couple months after the renovations are complete. Serio is putting a lot of attention into the lounge, hoping it will be a hit.
