Without sacrificing the liberal door policy or the many beers on tap, the owners have given the Bowery stalwart a clubby makeover by throwing a black epoxy resin on the floors, red light boxes under the bar, and squares of pleather on the walls. The old-school hip-hop and indie Britpop tunes emitting from the D.J. booth (modeled after a Chesterfield sofa) should complement artist Benjamin Kay's paintings and photos of Mick Jagger and Deborah Harry. The icing on the cake? Stripper poles in a reservable private back room.
