Marcus Samuelsson Launching Ginny's Supper Club Underneath Red Rooster

Over a year ago, we let you know that Red Rooster was planning to launch a jazz and supper club in the restaurant's spacious basement. Well, the very busy restaurant is finally getting up and running with the concept, which will be dubbed Ginny's Supper Club. Ginny's will feature a rotating slew of live performances - from jazz to reggae and rock acts. There will also be poets and authors thrown into the mix, and the space (which used to house Rooster's private dining room) will be decorated with artwork from local artists. Guests will be able to take in the action from leather banquettes or while chillin' at the 18-seat bar that stretches across the back of the room. Samuelsson will cook up a menu of bites that incorporates Southern, Chinese and French influences. With Red Rooster perpetually packed, this will surely be a welcome addition for those who can't score a table upstairs.


  1. This place sounds great. I went to Red Rooster when it opened, and sadly, I haven't been back. Mostly because I'm never that far uptown. But I"m digging Ginny's artist showcase concept.

  2. Does this mean the sultry side of basement jazz is going to have a revival? Who will be the next Billie Holiday crooning away at this place? I can't wait to see!
