ROCKFORD (WREX) — Members of the Verdi Club in Rockford will see a new addition to the facility that takes advantage of the Rock River views.
“We’ve been wanting to expand for awhile now and it’s just something that came up at the right time,” said Jason McCrea, the manager at the Verdi Club. “We’re ready to do it and we have the best property downtown here that you can have. So we want to get outside from the basement.”
A new bar at the members-only venue is being built. It is expected to seat 230 members and open up more space for the venue during other events.
The bar also hopes to take advantage of its view of the Rock River.
“Everybody wants to go out and see that. They don’t want to be down here with no windows, especially when it’s nice out. They want to be able to look down the river and the boaters can come in and dock and come in and get something to drink and things like that,” McCrea said.
The club hopes the project will be finished by April.
