What is the Cordoba Social Club?

cordoba social clubI got an e-mail yesterday about a new-ish club and live music venue called the Cordoba Social Club, at 3125 W. Belvedere Ave., near Pimlico Race Course.

Apparently, whoever runs this place is booking live music/DJs in there.

After some Googling, I was able to find a few fliers for events dating back as far as New Year's Eve. I can't find a phone number, and the club's Facebook page isn't much help.

Anybody know more about this place? ...

I called the liquor board, but they don't have any record of the club, which means it must not have a liquor license.

"We have nothing on it," said spokesman Douglas Paige. "It's not under our jurisdiction."


I gotta admit, I like the name. For a month last year, Amie lived in Cordoba, which is the second largest city in Argentina, next to Buenos Aires.

Sounds sketchy to me.

You like your kneecaps, Sessa?

Most likely a "bottle" club. Magic 8 ball says "outlook not so good"

Agree with the 'rat. Google the "cluc" and the promoters and will find jut the wispiest of traces of their existence. They mostly refer you to their MySpace pages, so we're cutting real cutting edge.

My guess, dope fliers and hit and run events.

desireable location, flier headlining patrick ewing, sultry white girl, and cb4. what could possibly be unsettling at this upstanding establishment?

sam, i think you need to take on this adventure and report back.

Like any good adventure, I hope you have an exit strategy, Sam. ~cue Indiana Jones theme~

Judging by the pictures, the hookers look upscale and their pimp seems to be making a good living. All in all, I call it a success.

There is something awesome about that kind of party promo photography/artwork. somebody should have a gallery showing. The semiotics are phresh....
