The press for the new lounge under the Red Rooster is out and photos of the interior have been released via New York magazine's Grub Street. As surmised previously, the entire speakeasy concept of the Prohibition Era has now been updated to a glamorous mid century modern lounge that is definitely more Dream Girls rather than Rag Time. This style of decor also has a lot of Scandinavian design elements of that period so it would make sense that Chef Samuelsson would have an affinity towards this aesthetic. Nevertheless, Ginny's Supper Club looks like an updated option for diners uptown and should help ease some congestion upstairs at 310 Lenox Avenue.
