We broke the exclusive on the latest nightclub taking over the old PM space at 50 Gansevoort, The Griffin, earlier this month. Today, we get more news from the inside. Not only will Griffin open as a nightclub, but they will be opening a cool new lounge in the space with specialty cocktails from the talent behind Milk & Honey and Little Branch lounges and lite bites from the chef at Macelleria. The lounge will be open Monday-Saturday at 5:30pm This is quite the unlikely pairing, though may be just what the space needs to propel itself from the "Just another nightclub in Meatpacking" mindset that many guests who got sweaty at its last club, PM, have set in their heads.
The nightclub itself, will be open Wed-Sat with bottle service beginning at 11pm. The opening night party will officially take place tomorrow night, though we hear there is a party there tonight, as well as "soft-launch" parties that took place all weekend.
Can specialty cocktails revive 50 Gansevoort?
