"After an amazing 5 years Cain will be closing it's doors. Please join us for an unforgettable night on Wednesday March 24th at 11pm to help us celebrate,"
-Jamie Mulholland, owner of Cain.
Yup, after climbing to the top of the West 27th Street bottle service heap, the safari-themed lounge is beating its final drum.
Marquee is still around, though its owners and famed doormen have moved onto younger child Avenue. Bungalow 8 is constantly rumored to be on the chopping block. An underage girl was murdered after drinking at Guest House. And a man fell to his death in since-closed B.E.D.'s elevator shaft.
Frankly we're impressed Cain prospered for as long as it did, especially given shifting tastes and a recession that all but eliminated bottle service as the dominant nightlife form. But as a wise Minnesotan once said, "parties weren't made to last."
We are glad that all energies with Mulholland and co. will now be focused on what is really important: Montauk.
