NoHo's Acme, the formerly-Cajun eatery that closed it's doors last spring after 25 years in the biz, has re-opened as a sleek new lounge. The new lounge has a similar feeling as if Indochine and Odeon had a baby. Oh, and they swear there won't be a basement nightclub.

According to Grubstreet,
"The downstairs will 100 percent not be a dance club. We have NO idea where anyone got that," says an Acme manager."Downstairs will have cocktails and a bar, and you can have parties there, but to be compared to Kenmare or Merkato 55 was pretty grating."
With good food (the executive chef, Mads Refslund, was plucked from his sous chef position at Noma in Copenhagen) and a new concept, we're thinking this place will play host to a bevy of exclusive parties this spring.
As one commenter put it:
Come on! The Olsen Twins were in the "downstairs" tonight. The owners also own Indochine. This place will be Kenmare'd in 16 months.
We'd have to agree.
