Does Casa Cipriani need a clientele makeover?
The private members-only club located in Lower Manhattan is desperately seeking new members because its current crowd is a bit low-rent, according to sources.
“They’re trying to get a better crowd because everyone is complaining that there are a bunch of [mob types] and … young girls who are practically naked running around,” a source tells Page Six exclusively.
Another person describes the atmosphere as being like “girls looking for sugar daddies.”
The luxe club is still in very high demand with 4,000 people on the waitlist, we’re told.
But apparently, “they’re looking for a cooler clientele, like art world people … more high-profile,” a source says.
“They’re really trying to clean it up, because right now, it’s getting a bit trashy.”
One nightlife insider suggests a solution.
“Hire an Amy Sacco. That’s who they need if they want to change the crowd,” the source tells us about the hospitality queen behind one of New York’s formerly most-storied nightlife destinations, Bungalow 8.
A spokesperson for the exclusive club, meanwhile, tells us, “We pride ourselves on the privacy of our community and do not comment on false accusations.”
The rep added: “Sounds like someone who is upset they cant get in… since the reality is that we have had more and more interest from the art and entertainment worlds.”
Meanwhile, the celeb hotspot, which counts Leonardo DiCaprio as a regular, allegedly lost one of its most famous members earlier this month.
Sources told us that Taylor Swift had canceled her membership after some guests snapped pictures of her on a date with Matty Healy in May.
The swanky club denied that Swift ditched the membership but acknowledged, “Casa Cipriani revoked memberships to a few members for infringing our club rules.”
A source told us that “at least three members got kicked out for taking pictures of Taylor.”
Either way, perhaps Swift will return after the alleged revamp.
