Arrow Swim Club in Northern Liberties in Photos: No Need to Hit The Beach This Summer

The Chelsea Pool, The Borgata Pool, now you can add The Arrow Swim Club Pool to the list of hot, happening, cool off scenes to be seen at day or night.
Unlike the Atlantic City Pools, Arrow Swim Club is an exclusive membership only pool and will cost you $1,000 to join; Not too pricey if you compare it to a weekend stay in AC at either the Borgata or Chelsea.
Last week I met with Nicole Cashman, of Cashman & Associates, who with developer Bart Blatstein of Tower Investments is partnering on the project, at Stephen Starr’s latest gem Dandelion, and she told me about the new project. She filled me in on a few tidbits here. The first thing I wanted to know about was the hours: Sunday thru Thursday will see earlier closing hours, but Friday and Saturday nights the pool will be opened til Midnight. It’s not a nightclub, Nicole told me, it’s a place to swim and socialize, but there will be music.
Everyday in fact their will be music, including DJ sets. No doubt we will see international DJ sensation Nigel Richards, who has been dating Nicole Cashman for nearly a year. PS Earlier last week I mentioned that Matthew Izzo’s store in The White Building at 105 South 12th Street, will be selling Nigel’s clothing brand 611 Lifestyle inside his store. Look for the store opening this week. A lot more will be revealed at the kick-off celebration party March 3 where potential members can find out more about the club, see the layout, more information on the cabana’s and sign up for a summer they won’t forget where there will be
monthly member only parties, movie nights, movie screenings, yoga on the side deck, cocktail parties, private cabanas equipped with cable, PlayStation and Blu-ray players; there’s a snack bar and an the on-site restaurant. A fire-pit lounge; and all those fun things you remember as a kid when you belonged to a swim club, but now it’s adult time as the minimum age for this club is 21. There’s no kiddie pool. Opening date is May 1. Pool has already been dug, it’s 4 1/2 feet deep, no diving please.
