Onward State: New Orleans-Themed Nightclub Opens Tonight
By Dave Cole
A New Orleans-themed restaurant and club, called club Duo will open Thursday. Located on Pugh Street between College Avenue and Beaver Avenue, the restaurant portion of the complex, which features a quality cajun-infused menu, had been previously announced, however the second floor nightclub remained unknown.
The second floor nightclub will hold separate hours, at least at first, and will open Thursday at 8 p.m. until 1 a.m., while the downstairs restaurant will open Tuesday. To further enhance the experience, there will be a live blues duo every Friday and Saturday night in the restaurant.
According to manager Rob Cleapor, the goal is to “bring the big city nightlife feeling to State College in a way that is inviting to the local demographic.”
“We understand Penn State University is a melting pot, so we want to provide a place that offers a little bit of everything for everyone,” said Cleapor. By offering both an upscale eatery and a nightclub, diverse crowds will be attracted.
Duo has the potential to offer a classy alternative to Indigo and Levels, with the added potential for an open-air deck and quality cajun food. Are you going to check it out this weekend?
