The Post's John Kelly ("Answer Man") is looking for the answer to this reader's question, and there are some folks on this forum who have great recall, so I thought I'd post this:

"Speaking of memories, Joseph Price of the District wonders if you can jog his. He's trying to remember the name of a nightspot
in Falls Church he used to visit in the 1980s. It was near Seven Corners, behind what was then Lord & Taylor. The ground-level
entrance contained a pub. A lower-level entrance led to a stage with spotlights and tables and chairs. "I remember enjoying
a wonderful performance of the solo song cycle 'Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris,' " Joseph wrote.

Joseph said the ground-level entrance was flanked by two black London taxis facing each other on the lawn. "It was so curious
that it was located in a residential neighborhood, on a residential street rather than on a major road," he wrote.

Who can provide details?"

There used to be a restaurant near the old Lord & Taylor at Seven Corners called The Country Squire, but I don't recall it being a club. I believe it was up Patrick Henry Drive, so it was not directly behind L & T.
