Social club set to open in May in downtown Charlottesville

They’ve raised the roof, fixed the walls, refurbished the building and they’re ready for members.
Common House, a member-based social club and event space, is expected to open in May in the Market Street site of the former Mentor Lodge, one of the city’s first social clubs that for decades served the African-American population in town.
The site will provide space to relax, talk, meet, dine and listen to music both live and recorded, club officials said.
The club’s most recent incarnation has been in the planning stage for a couple of years but hit a setback last winter when wet snow caused a partial roof collapse at the 206 W. Market St. space, built in 1913.
