What do Amie and I want for Christmas?
We want a supper club. We want a high-end restaurant where you can get dressed up, eat a meal and dance the night away while a live band plays.
I guess you would call something like that a supper club. They were from another time altogether -- namely the 1920s-50s.
I'm not sure why they fell out of favor. Maybe they were too expensive to operate. Or maybe they didn't change with the times.
The accompanying photo is of Gardel's Supper Club, which closed about a year ago, if memory serves. It was the closest you could get to one of those vintage establishments.
What do you wish Baltimore's nightlife scene had?
