The jury is out. Nay-sayers insist that B-Bar’s moment has passed and that it now draws only bridge-and-tunnel drinkers in pursuit of the trendy Gothamites who have, little do they know, moved on to less hyped locales.

Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
