Just as sexy as you imagined it to be?
Just as sexy as you imagined it to be?

Last night, the people behind the "revival" of the Copacabana debuted its new Times Square location during a preview party, complete with a buffet of ceviche, paella, and vegetables, new Copa dancers, and some historic Copa dancers of the past. The mega four-floor, 25,000 square foot space, located in the old China Club spot is coming out of a gut renovation. It will reopen as a restaurant and dance club, complete with a glass enclosed rooftop, nightly live music acts, and a "retro-glamorous" Supper Club by Calle Ocho chef Alex Garcia in mid-July. The Copa has been without a home since 2007 and was once known for its famed guests, including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis.

Update: Some details on the menu of the Supper Club, per a release: "As Garcia explores Peru, the diner experiences a traditional Tiradito from Lima and Jalea, rock shrimp, squid & scallops lightly fried in cornmeal with oranges & lemons from Cabo Blanco. On to Mexico where the entrée Tres Moles, features three types of moles, yellow, black and red chicken mole with a Nopales cactus salad from Oaxaca. From the chef’s native Cuba, there’s a Rabo, a fiery braised oxtail with bone marrow and a fig & onion house made marmalade as well as Arroz Imperial, grilled chicken with saffron rice, chicken stew, caper & olives from Mantanzas."
