Alan Cumming Is Opening the Gay Bar ‘Club Cumming’ with Daniel Nardicio

Alan Cumming is known for his work on stage and screen, but he is also known for throwing awesome parties. Like his character in Cabaret, he is the master of ceremonies hosting a queer eclectic mix of people from all walks of life who rage until dawn. With the help of event producer Daniel Nardicio (who also knows how to party), the pair are opening the gay bar Club Cumming, a spot where the actor’s partying ways will be on display every night of the week.

Club Cumming was the name given to Cumming’s legendary Cabaret dressing room after-party that later moved to Studio 54. “I like entertaining,” he told The New York Times back in 2015. “And I think you have a responsibility as well as the leader of the company to make everyone have a good time.”

When on Harry Connick Jr.’s show earlier this year, he explained how Club Cumming began.

Alan Cumming said:

Well, when I was doing Cabaret the last time, the show on Broadway about a year or two ago, I made my dressing room into a club. I was filming The Good Wife at the same time, I was doing a Broadway show at night, I thought, When I am going to have any fun?

So I made my dressing room into a club. We had a neon sign called “Club Cumming.” I got Campari to sponsor my bar in my dressing room. They gave me free booze for a year. So then after it was a fun thing, every night I just didn’t have to go anywhere. I would leave sometimes and leave people there.

And then it became this thing, and since I have thrown these Club Cumming parties. And I might even actually quite soon have an actual Club Cumming in New York City, like an actual bar.

Well, news has finally broken about Club Cumming getting a permanent residence in New York City’s nightlife community.

Daniel Nardicio announced Club Cumming on Twitter:

The club is slated to open fall 2017 in New York City. The exact location hasn’t been announced, but we are thinking somewhere in the East Village.
