Rumor of the Day: Pink Elephant to Room Service

Here's a fun little rumor that we just heard. According to a Little Birdy, Pink Elephant on 27th Street is no longer the real Pink Elephant, and the owners of Pink Elephant are hoping to take over another venue. Confused? So are we, so we will let our Little Birdy explain. According to our LB, "M2 is operating the space & the Pink owners (David and Bobby) are gone. They went to court this morning in order to get an injunction against the M2 people to have them stop using there name." Not only that, but our LB also tells us that the Pink team are hoping to take over the former Room Service space on 21st Street that is currently hosting Mr. Black on Friday nights. Got all of that? We called Pink Elephant a few minutes ago, finding out that they are still open for business Wednesday through Sunday nights. Who is actually in charge, we don't know.

Guys don't be haters... This club has been running successfully for 4 years and has become a branded
trademark in terms of commercial house music...

Have to agree with Elephant Man, it has stayed the most consistent over time, and internationally is a very well recognized brand. The hosting services and music quality is always top-notch (on in-house nights, that is). Marquee for all its brand power in NYC never opened a Marquee anywhere else. The jetset crowd knows and respects the Pink name. I don't think its done though, probably just some of the usual infighting.

Cain, on the other hand....

Pink is absolutely still open and rocking out harder than ever. 2 of the 4 original owners (Bobby and David) left for private reasons and are pursuing other venues to operare, but things will remain the same at Pink. Look for special events to be hitting Pink throughout the Fall season.

To all you haters- don't be upset that you were deemed too fat to be allowed inside the club.. need to keep it classy ya know? ;-)

I went to Pink last Saturday at 2am and we couldn't get a table, I am cool with Stephan but he said it was completely sold out and they couldn't do much. They comped us admission because I have dropped cash there before, but I have to admit it was totally packed, owners or no owners...

Pink Elephant has had the most consistent parties in New York for years. I don't know the owners and I wouldn't know if they were there or not there on any night that I am but I do know the crowd is always good looking and trendy, the music is very good, the staff are real pros and I always have a great time.

September 17, 2009 at 04:05PM | Unregistered CommenterParty Hard

Yup Pink is internationally recognized... Punta del Este, Sao Paolo, Hamptons, St Barth etc... Don't think we can say as much for most other clubs! Last night was simply amazing, full house, room sold out and an energy to keep you awake until dawn. All I can say is WOW!

The rumor is apparently true. PE crew set to move into Room Service space this weekend. All I can say is that the people behind Room Service are liars and were telling Mr. Black one thing, while doing another behind their back. Nothing surprising for most of clubland, but they were using Mr. Black until they could get the PE deal sorted. I hope PE knows what they're in for as the RS people can't be trusted for shit. PE is a great brand and as they've always done well, will bring that 4th rate space more cachet than they've ever seen. I wish PE well, but they should watch their backs.
