Inability to come to terms with the landlord on a lease that would allow the club to still remain profitable was the reason cited for its closure. A club representative noted there were no plans to relocate the club at this time. Frequenters to the Manhattan night spot enjoyed nightly performances in the cabaret followed by late night entertainment in the piano bar which featured a singing wait staff. All of that and a meal too as a full menu of appetizers, entrees and desserts rushed from the kitchen nightly under the supervision of chef Sara Daniels.
Two shows scheduled to play at Judy's Chelsea — Lucille Carr-Kaffashan's cabaret "Young @ Heart" as well as Anne Pringle and Mark Burnell's "Our Songs" — have been moved to other venues. "Young @ Heart" wil play at Don'T Tell Mama, 343 West 46th Street, (212) 757-0788 and "Our Songs" will play Upstairs at Rose's Turn, 55 Grove Street,(212) 366-5438 instead.
