"The Place Is A Smash. Is It The Next Beatrice? I Don't Even Know What That Means. Why Can't It Just Be The Jane Ballroom?"

by Rachelle Hruska · July 22, 2009

Which NY nightlife fixture is getting heated over the bad press of late on the Jane Ballroom? Answer below...

It's Steve Lewis in his latest column for Blackbook Magazine. FYI: Steve is officially part of the print version of the magazine (not just the online part)!  And, he's still one of our favorite reads. In "Not So Plain Jane" he discusses his latest visit to the new venue.

Says Steve:

"I’m real sick and tired of snarky wannabes who wouldn’t know what end of the bottle to pour booze from, declaring a place done 20 minutes after it’s open. I’d love these snarky know-it-all commentators to open a joint. That space wouldn’t last an Andy Warhol 15 minutes"
