Upper East Side bar staple Aces and Eights has transplanted its dude-ranch ethos into the former home of Mo Pitkin’s. Unlike many of the area’s mood-lit fashion saloons, Aces makes no play at high-minded design or just-so seedy charm: It is an unapologetic frat trap, with burgers, sports, cheap pitchers of watery domestic, and no fewer than six regulation beer-pong tables. These loving monuments to sudsy revelry nearly overshadow the back room’s chic half-circle booths, each flanked by dueling mini-flat-screens, in a show of drunk excess lit by Aces’ custom neon cowboys. A full upstairs lounge adds yet another layer to what will almost certainly become the choice spot for wayward uptowners seeking a taste of home abroad.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
