One of the biggest openings of the fall is now here! Carnival, the carnival/boardwalk themed restaurant/bar above Bowlmor Lanes soft opened to the public on Friday. Listen to Justin Rocket Silverman's take:
Welcome to Carnival, so far the most amusing 21st-century fun zone to open in the Big Apple. By day, it’s a playground for kids of all ages. After the sun sets, it morphs into a new nightclub as unique as The Box was when it opened in early 2007.
It gets better! The venue, which is located on the roof of the building under a pressurized dome, offers all the usual carnival games. But while they give out toys during the day, they're switched out at night "for toys of a different kind — think mini-vibrators." And yes, there is a dance floor, VIP tables, and bottle service. Bonkers. The private grand opening party will be held this weekend by, of course, Paris Hilton. The one sad note: she's only open Thurs. - Sat. for the time being.
