Walnut Room becoming Ten Six Club

The Walnut Room above Alfa restaurant at 1709 Walnut St., which closed on New Year’s Eve, is coming back as Ten Six Club, a dance club.

Same owners, Joe Beckham and Giancarlo Dipasquale, who have Alfa and Fishtown’s Loco Pez

Opening night will be Thursday, Jan. 17 from 10 a.m. to midnight, after the media gets its first look. Regular hours will start Jan. 18 (Tuesdays through Saturdays from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.).

New decor is touted as "1960s mod meets British rock with bold pinks and golds, luxe Chesterfield sofas, and beaded drapery." The front room will be private.

Early programming includes kamikaze karaoke, British rock nights, and dub step/pop dance parties.
