  • NEWS: IS BOTTLE SERVICE OVER IN NY?

    Eh, no. That’s just some clever (and effective) PR that club Prime is sending out. From Beatportal: “This Saturday, Prime nightclub at 511 West 28th St in New York will reopen as a “high energy dance club” and an announcement this morning is claiming that the new Prime represents the end of bottle service in NYC.”

    With Wall Street jobs suffering the way they are, some might be inclined to believe that the glory days for bottle service clubs in NY are actually over. However, the clever folks at NYMag did some investigation and found that Prime and all the others like it are sticking to their tried and true business models (and bottles). (Hopefully they wont be clever enough to evolve and will go the way of the dinosaur!)

  • REVIEW: SINDEN AT LOVE

    By Jon Caramanica – NYTimes

    “In London, Graeme Sinden D.J.’s for thousands; hosts a weekly radio show on Kiss 100, a major hip-hop and dance music station; and is known for his remixes of grime, R&B and, recently, Bjork.

    These were facts that maybe one-third of the couple of hundred or so people at the basement nightclub Love on Saturday night, where he was D.J.ing, seemed to know or care about. Such is the conundrum facing the overseas dance music star in New York, where the lack of interest can be chilling. (Just ask Armand Van Helden, the longtime hometown nightclub kingpin who dropped in to listen for a spell.)” [Read More]

  • NEWS: CREATIVE WORKSPACE IN BK

    From Brownstoner.com:

    “Today, 11 “creative work spaces” are up for rent at Industry City, the six-million-square-foot Sunset Park complex that aims to snatch up some of the artsy commercial clientele getting priced out of Dumbo; spaces there average about $28 per square foot, says Industry City Creative Work Spaces consultant Chris Havens. These spaces, from 812 square feet to 2,598 square feet in a renovated, 100-year-old building, will go for around $16 per square foot. “We’re just trying to make it a better place to work and put more jobs in the building,” says Havens; artists’ spaces and industry/manufacturing spaces are also for rent, but this venture targets those with small businesses who need a wired, finished, pre-built office space. Today, ICCWS launches a blog. There you can find out when more spaces go on the market and the variety of delicious lunch spots that deliver to the complex — all important to create a positive work environment.” [Read More]

  • NEWS: MINITEK APOLOGIZES

    From: http://minitekfestival.com/blog/

    dear all,

    as we’ve expected, there are many enraged, disappointed and upset people out there that gave minitek’s first edition their support.

    obviously we want to apologize for all the mishaps that have taken place over the weekend and we know well that we can offer little to make up for the bad experiences. we can’t blame you for directing all your anger towards us, as we are the official representatives of the festival, however, to save at least a little bit of face, we would like to set a few things clear.

    1) unlike the comments that have been posted, we DID NOT book a night venue that wouldn’t hold the amount of people we expected. instead we worked with a venue that had misrepresented their certificate of occupancy (the official document that restricts the amount of people the venue can legally hold). there was no reason to believe that the 38.000sf venue couldn’t hold the people that had paid for weekend passes at the very least.
