“When entering Stookey’s Club Moderne, we want patrons to feel a hint of the magic of stepping back in time,” says owner and bartender Tim Stookey.
And indeed you do, except that instead of crossing into the age of speakeasies, as has been the trend with many local cocktail bars, Club Moderne ushers you into the Post-Prohibition golden era of the 1930s and 1940s. The decor, furniture, music and architectural accents are straight from the Streamline Moderne design period, an evolution of Art Deco that sought to remove some of the ornamental elements and instead focus on form and function.
