Nightlife Notebook: Ashman's New Venture, Breakfast at 1OAK

New, 3 comments

CHELSEA— Former Plumm owner Noel Ashman has taken a financial stake in the Star Lounge below the Chelsea Hotel, a far cry from his previously mentioned plans of a downtown members only club. [Chelsea Now]

MEPA— How does 1OAK live up to its moniker of being a truly one of a kind nightclub? What about serving its customers breakfast at the end of the night? A tipster passed along a note they received, saying "you stay late enough, 1Oak bolts the doors and serves breakfast. truly 1OfAKind". A rep for the club could not confirm there was any food served. [EaterWire]

WILLIAMSBURG— More from the cheeky sign department, as this beauty on the right was spotted by a tipster walking on Bedford Avenue recently, telling Eater that, "sadly, we were a few minutes late." [EaterWire]

TIMES SQUARE— Gay nightclubs are hardly new, but a gay nightclub inside a hotel? Now you're talking gay. The Out Hotel has lined up former XL owner John Blair to open a 750 patron, 10,000 square foot dance club in the hotel, which will be a renovated Travel Inn on 42nd Street and 10th Avenue.

NOLITA— More from the newest hot spot Kenmare, where it seems the place to hang is the restaurant's cave-like (and all white) basement space. [Eater Wire]

EAST VILLAGE— Speaking of previews, Jesse Malin's new restaurant Black Market hosted a little shimmy last night in honor of Rodarte, attracting the likes of Bono, Michael Stipe, Natalie Portman, the Olsen twins and Kirsten Dunst. A tipster tells us that the party began upstairs in the former pizza shop and headed down to Cabin, where "one of the Rodarte people kept changing the songs every like 20 seconds and finally the sound system got fried." An emergency iPod was found and order was quickly restored. Black Market will open to the public in a few weeks. [EaterWire]
