Busting open this week in the East Village is Club Cumming, actor Alan Cumming’s fantasy performance-based salon at 505 East 6th Street. Opening month comes with a whole host of entertainment, varying from live jazz to erotic readings to disco DJ’s.

The full schedule of events is here, notably with Cumming’s “Haus of Cumming” for the club’s grand opening evening this Saturday, September 16 (every night leading up to that has been part of the so-called flaccid opening). Cumming himself will be on site that night. There will also be book releases, “stitch and bitch” knitting classes, tantric sex workshops, and more.

Cumming describes his creation — a collaboration with co-owners Benjamin Maisani and Daniel Nardicio — as “a home for everyone of all ages, all genders, all sexualities, who all enjoy letting go and making some mischief. No judgments, no attitude, no rules, except kindness, acceptance and fun,” — which goes some way to explain the eclectic offerings.

Cumming first concocted Club Cumming in his Cabaret dressing room, where he put together a late-night hang with celebrity friends that featured his own branded cups and napkins, vegan soup, a Campari sponsorship, a neon sign, and even a doorman. He went so far as to collaborate with Fishs Eddy on a designed line for the idea and has even hosted versions in Los Angeles, New Orleans, and Edinburgh, Scotland. This opening makes the project official.
