Last week I had the pleasure of touring The Oracle Club in Long Island City, Queens. This members only creative workspace for artists, writers and the like was started by visionaries Jenna Gribbon and Julian Tepper. Memberships range between $50-$175 per month for access to this artistic oasis and classes and readings are available to non-members as well. The Oracle Club is a welcome addition to the ever flourishing neighborhood and I personally couldn’t be more excited!
The club’s decor is vintage chic with a touch of whimsy; think Alice in Wonderland meets The Harvard Club. I could have lost hours in their library adorned with velvety chairs and cozy reading nooks. The atmosphere is definitely created with intent to inspire.
During my visit, the salon was taken over by chic locals attending a collage class led by Caris Reid. It seemed like a perfect way to spend a Tuesday night; meeting new people and listening to unapologetic hip music on vinyl. I could almost see myself there next week with scissors in hand.
For the latest updates on readings and classes, visit The Oracle Club’s website HERE and stop by their facebook page HERE . If you’re a local, perhaps we can check out their Sunday Painters class sometime soon together!
