Copacabana Nightclub Closing

The famous New York nightclub, immortalized by the Barry Manilow hit has to leave because of subway construction. “The three-floor space on Manhattan’s West Side, a replica of the original club where Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin once ruled, is locking up shop after Latin superstars El Gran Combo play Saturday night. Owner Juliano, who bought the Copa with two partners in 1976, said he hoped to open a new club under the old name by October.”
