Los Feliz Looks Kind of Awesome

Our friends at Metromix took a tour of the soon to open Los Feliz in the Lower East Side, and we have to say, it looks kind of awesome. The former Suba space has been transformed into a multi-level den of tequila themed debauchery, including a "cobblestone-paved and graffiti-covered underground grotto". How can you go wrong with a grotto? Due to its location, we expect this place to be a shit-show on the weekends, but have high hopes for some tequila fueled weeknights.[Metromix]



LES and MePa Keep Going

The renaissance of both the Meatpacking District and Lower East Side continue. Long after both neighborhoods ascended to their zeniths of cool and had been left for dead after their apparent demise, they continue to attract new money to help redo joints that failed when the music stopped the first time around. Today's examples?

  • The Daddy and Bowery Boogie get the jump on Los Feliz, a multi-level tequila and tacqueria on Ludlow that will soft open this Friday. In an anti-Esquina manner, it seems the top floor will offer food and drinks, and the further down you go, the more private it becomes. Eventurally, you'll arrive in the back room where, "under chandeliers as a DJ spins the perfect margarita-flavored soundtrack." We aren't sure if that means Jimmy Buffet or what. The place is brought to you by the LES powerhouses behind Spitzers Corner, so expect some way above average food. We hope. [UD/BB]
  • Metromix sits down David Graziano (Bagatelle, RDV, Kiss and Fly) to get the juice on his latest project, Gansevoort 69, in the former Florent space. DG says they will keep much of the feel of the old space, with some modern touches, including a possible roof deck next door for private events, as well as a discount card for employees who work in the area. What you should be most excited for? G 69 will be clean, since Graziano felt Florent had "a sense of dirtiness". [Metromix]
