Negotiations are underway for the Bellaire Club’s new home. We’re trying to get the final word on a great new location for space in the Maplewood Mall, located on Beechnut between Hillcroft and Pontiac. The space is a former dance studio at the east end of the shopping center that is home to Foodarama. The location would offer ample meeting space and includes two bathrooms and space for a coffee bar/kitchen. Right now, we’re waiting for the landlord’s response.

Stay tuned here for updates on our new home.
