El Bano Is Really Exclusive!

Being the diligent journalists that we are, we decided to email the reservations line at El Bano to try and get the low down on this secret bastion of exclusivity. The result? El Bano is even more exclusive than we could ever imagine! We got an immediate response back, saying:

Thanks for your reservation inquiry.

Due to the exclusivity of our club, it's impossible for us to accommodate all requests.  If you feel you really belong, please E-Mail us back and let us know why.

Well, how could we ever come up with a reason as to why we belong in the Toilet? We couldn't. But our scientists are still working on answering their brain teaser, and we will have a location shortly.

Looks like someone spoofing Eldridge, et al. Can't be real. Viral marketing at most.

The url has been registered since 2006.
The name actually makes sense though...when I think of mexican food, I think of bathroom.

The Hint give it away, I mean come on, if you cant look at that and know exactly where it is you clearly have never been out.

Fuck all of these "exclusive" places. NYC has had enough of this shit. Anybody who wants to go these places should kill themselves. Bring back fun places without bottle service and douchebag doormen. Fuck mixologists and pomegranate infused bullshit. GRRRR i hate this shit.

This make me want to go even more, they usually suck, and wont last long. However, its all about curiosity. Once one person goes, anyone will be able to figure out where it is. Guaranteed by it's 2nd week numerous people will have posted where it is.

Milk and Honey has done a good job of keeping the new number under wraps for the past year
