The much discussed Save the Beatrice affair did indeed take place Friday night in the penthouse of the Cooper Square Hotel. The Beatrice Inn staff spread the word Friday afternoon to regular patrons to come by the glassy box tower on the Bowery for some old school Beatrice fun, albeit in a much more modern space - complete with a wrap-around balcony and amazing views. Here's how one Little Birdy summed it up:
It was the usual debauchery with the penthouse taken over. There was free drinks at the bar an in he bathtub. people were peeing in the showers and dancing on the wrap around terrace. It was really fun. Angelo and Todd only let in people they knew. Lots of people got turned away, even people who go to the Beatrice all the time. Even people who were meeting friends got turned away. It was really strange who got in and who didn’t. I don’t know what the door policy was, but once you got in it was free drinks all around with lots of Belvedere IX to go around.
Don't forget the Save the Beatrice t-shirts and buttons, as well as a super soaker full of either Jack or Don Julio acting as a mobile shot station which we passed on. What can we say? Anyway, guests included one of the Olsen girls, Chloe Sevigny, some skinny guys with moustaches, and KP. Yeah you know me. Rumor has it that the Bea should be back up and running by the end of the month at the latest, with a good chance it could happen by next week. Exhale.
