“We used to be the coolest place on the globe,” Mayor Eric Adams told Stephen Colbert back in November. “We’re so damn boring now, man.”
Adams has worked to change things once he was inaugurated, ushering through the end of the indoor dining vaccine mandate — and he’s been out on the town since. Often described as the “nightlife mayor” (as well as the “blue-collar mayor” ) he’s a frequent visitor to members-only club Zero Bond in Soho.
