The Country Club Gets a New Bar, Champagne Room
by Shay Sokol
BYWATER - Neighborhood favorite The Country Club finished renovating its bar last week into a spacious, 4-sided square walkaround. The changes add breathing room for drinking to its other amenities: a big Sunday brunch, and a saline pool mostly occupied by men whose state of dress tends to vary. Three large televisions are hung over the bar for watching the Saints, or whatever else is on during those terrible months of the year when it's not football season. A larger bar also means more options, including draft beer.
Bert McComas, the general manager of the Country Club, said the renovations maintain “the integrity of the house,” with original molding retained and retouched over the doorways of the barroom. The wood floors had to be completely redone after ripping out the old bar. A wall dividing the barroom was knocked down to fit in the larger, 20x30-foot square walkaround bar with dark granite countertops.
Also new to the Club's champagne room are a television, high chairs and cocktail tables, providing a place to sit nearby the bigger barroom.
The Country Club hasn’t only expanded architecturally. Last Sunday, under the new chef Mary Jane Rosas, the Country Club pumped out its biggest drag brunch in history. The event will be held on the third Sunday of every month, and feature $10 bottomless Mimosas, the Club's weekend brunch menu and, of course, fabulousness, from 11 a.m. - 3 a.m.
As summer approaches, the saline pool will be chilled (in the wintertime, they heat it). Bring your towels, tummies, and good times to the CountryClub and check it out for yourself.
