BEast, located underneath Broadway East, was the latest — after Chloe and Southside — in the wave of lounges tucked under restaurants. As far as downtown cred goes, this one might just be your winner. We’re not just saying that because it has a cool entry involving a secret buzzer and a sexy hallway. That's pretty much de rigeur these days. No, we’re saying it because it’s operated by Ron Castellano, and the sound system, like the one at his other spot, Santos’ Party House, is designed by Jim Toth. (At times, à la Void circa 2000, there’ll be “video nights” pairing visual artists with D.J.'s.) Also: in keeping with Broadway East, organic wines will come from producers who participate in land preservation, solar power, wildlife protection, and the like. The drinks, including a tomato martini that looks similar to the one at Devin Tavern (tomato vodka, curried green-tomato garnish) will also showcase organic brands like Crops vodka.
