Why does Plumm get such a bum rap? According to one Little Birdy, it may have something to do with owner Noel Ashman selling out his interest in the club. Our LB says:
rumor is that noel ashman does not care about his biz is because he sold 40% of his club "Plumm". He is gonna closed soon and reopen with another name and new staff. Thats why he is having so many getto parties and not paying his staff. Also Damian Dash is gona be invoved in it.
We think Damian's momma may have an issue with that arrangement! As for closing, Noel Ashman's reps firmly deny the story, telling DBTH:
Story not true! In fact, Noel and his business team are looking to open another space in NYC as well as versions of The Plumm in Atlantic City and Las Vegas.
The A.C. rumors have been floated for a long time with nothing to show for it. The Plumm in Vegas?! Color us dubious over that story line, with our Vegas Guru telling us "no credible ny club owners want to be in vegas now. too expensive to open and the industry is in the doldrums." As for the Plumm, negative rumors have been swiriling around the space for months, and similar clubs turn over all the time in New York. The most important thing is the location and valid liquor license, and long term operators like Noel always seem to find cash to get things done. No word if Ethan Browne and Heather Hunter are going to be part of the new operations.
