Restaurateur Steve Hanson is dipping his toe back into the nightlife game with Hilo, a new Meatpacking District club that will open in the space that previously housed Hanson's The Bunker. If you recall, The Bunker opened with an A+ nightlife team behind it that included Matt Abramcyk, but the club never seemed to catch on after the opening, leading Hanson to shut it down last June. It seemed that Hanson was getting out of the nightclub business all together when he decided to kill his other clubby project Kibo around the same time.
Now Hanson is ready to do it again, this time opening a club that won't have any kind of door policy or reservations requirement. A club for the masses — who would have thunk it?
