The Bowery Electric, a rock bar opened in the former Remote Lounge space, is a straightforward affair à la Midway, R Bar, and others, dimly lit by Edison bulbs: Horsehair-type stools at a long bar in the front room (14 beers on tap) and some tables in the boxy back room, where of course Remote Lounge’s surveillance stations used to be. And while that sounds like an undersell, check out the owner roll: in addition to Diane Gentile, the proprietors are Jesse Malin and Johnny T of Niagara and Black and White (and in Malin's case, Coney Island High before those), which is a hell of a pedigree. The bar is the picture of simplicity, and, given the gatekeepers, we suspect it’ll stay that way.
