Soulard Supper Club is open in old Woodies space

The Soulard Supper Club is open at 706 Lafayette Avenue in the former Carnegie Library, the space that previously was home to Woodies.

The club opened Thursday morning, April 28, and serves lunch and dinner daily from the same casual-fare menu, alongside a full bar and wide variety of evening performances including female and male impersonation, burlesque, variety show performances and fire performers.

“It's friendly; it's welcoming to all,” said Charlotte Sumtimes, the club's director of entertainment. "Have dinner and watch the show, or just have drinks and watch the show. And then after the show, the stage turns into a dance floor, so if you feel like you want to get up and boogie a little bit, get up and dance.”

Friday night's inaugural show at the Soulard Supper Club will feature drag king Rydyr Reeves, boylesque performer Jewcy James, and drag queens Paris Amor and Janessa Highland.

All Friday and Saturday shows begin at 9 p.m; operating hours are 11 a.m.-1:30 a.m. Wednesday-Sunday. Admission is free for guests 21 and older; $10 for guests 18-20.

Fans of Sumtimes' work can also look forward to the opening of Spectrum Nightclub this summer at 3515 Chouteau Avenue, formerly the long-running Complex nightclub. She will also serve as director of entertainment there.

“With Spectrum that's going to be young, high-energy dance club and shows, and Soulard Supper Club has more for bachelorettes, birthday parties and celebrations," Sumtimes said. "It's right there in Soulard, and we can offer dinner and shows — completely different experience.”
