The Vaudeville, true to its name, is a sort of carnival experience where you can shop, dine, drink and view art all in one place. It feels out of place on the old main street country town, with its European, upscale vibe. When the 1915 building became available, owners Jordan Muraglia and Richard Boprae decided to make it into a vaudeville, or a variety performance like those of the early 20th century. Jordan and Richard both have incredible yet unique talents they contribute to the business, so a variety show just makes perfect sense. With all the levels and “acts” performing in harmony in this building, they really made that concept work.
The second floor features an art gallery. The main floor is an upscale home goods and furniture store where you’ll find rose gold cocktail shakers and $1,200 couture leather clutches from Paris.
A curtain in the store leads you to a secret bar with a private supper club. This is where the Jordan serves multi-course gourmet New American dinners on Friday, Saturday and Monday nights. I hear that the crab curry soup is to-die-for, and I can’t wait to try it. Finally, the bottom floor has a bistro (open daily) with French pastries, a wine cellar, and the best damn Sunday fried chicken you’ll ever have.
At Left Right, we’re really interested in historic preservation and giving new life to old businesses and structures with great design and big ideas. Vaudeville has done just that, bringing a new story to life in Fredericksburg.
