Events / 239 Collective: The Downtowner Club


AFTER WORLD WAR II, THE OLD BAMBERGER’S DEPARTMENT STORE OPENED A NEW RESTAURANT ON THEIR 10TH FLOOR:
THE DOWNTOWNER CLUB.


ALL AROUND THE CITY, SPACES LIKE IT WERE EVOLVING INTO CULTURAL CENTERS OF POSTWAR NEWARK: HOMES OF BLAZING JAZZ, SEXY BODIES AND THE SENSE OF UNLIMITED POSSIBILITY THAT DEFINED AN ERA.


MORE THAN A HALF-CENTURY LATER, THE 239 COLLECTIVE IS BRINGING IT ALL BACK. JOIN US AS WE WELCOME THE JAZZ, THE BURLESQUE AND THE QUINTESSENTIALLY NEWARK, ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE STORE WHERE IT ALL BEGAN.
