The (new) Copacabana

The Copacabana is re-opening in Times Square tomorrow night after the West 34th location was forced to close down when the city expanded the 7 subway line.


The legendary hot-spot where Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis got their start and is the oldest club in New York, is looking very 2011. Check out the rendering of the rooftop area – much different from when Martin Scorsese filmed his famous Copa scene in “Good Fellas.” But the new Copa will still have some old-school traditions: the Copa dancers will be there shaking their thang.


“At the Copa…Copacabana, music and laughter…”
