Old World Literary Salon Meets Co-Working Space In Long Island City
An update version of the age old club is set up by a writer and a painter to provide a space for and inspiration to young creators.
The Oracle Club is a collaboration between novelist Julian Tepper and painter Jenna Gribbon, who hope to draw like-minded writers and artists. The recently opened members-only salon in Long Island City is a meeting (and working) place for writers, artists and intellectuals. The three-room space includes a library, a living room and an art studio, all decorated in an eclectic style, which Gribbon describes as “Salvador Dali’s house meets Whistler’s Peacock Room meets Coco Chanel’s house meets Cocteau’s Chapel.” Jenna intends to continually evolve the decor, “there’s a real difference in the feel of a place that is conceived entirely on paper and one that is allowed to organically evolve.”
