Crooners Supper Club

Crooners Supper Club celebrates and pays homage to the second Golden Age of the 20th century and the fabulous dining experiences it provided. In America’s best restaurants “Continental Cuisine” graced the tables. Dishes brought back from the GI’s experience in Europe had evolved into something uniquely American. People dressed for dinner and added to the level of sophistication that made dining out a special occasion. And everywhere there was live music from Crooners tinkling the 88’s and giving us their versions of Sinatra, Martin, Como and Darin. Crooners Supper Club brings it to you with their own contemporary spin that is at once mid-20th century and yet current and relevant for today. Join them on a trip back to that iconic time on 21st century wings.
