Last Saturday, Steve Lewis helped ring in the NEW Webster Hall, complete with a make over by the superstar himself.  I sat down with him to ask him how the night went.  Here is a bit of what he told me:

"It was as I expected. A real old school nightclub experience with tons of stuff happening in different rooms.  Cassidy rocked in the Marlin Room and Kaskade was amazing on the main.  The Euro party on the balcony was really well received.  People stayed and seemed to enjoy themselves.  I think it's going to be what my design intended, a funky let your hair down old school club with great DJ's"

Steve is not done with construction yet and said he's curious to see how Saturday goes this week with Mark Ronson. "It's 40,000 square feel and as usual no matter how long you have there's still paint drying."

"This wasn't intended as an opening in the classic sense as the joint has basically been open since 1886 and we didn't close for construction.  It was more like an introduction a statement that Webster Hall is here and folks who are disenfranchised by the usual boring beats in music and beatdowns with bottle service can have fun, I actually think there is no place to go on the weekends except here...."

We also heard from our tip line that this Friday, Roger Taylor from Duran Duran is DJing with Plumm owner Noel Ashman handling the Marlin Room with Chris Paulson and DJ Nick Cohen....
