Stars who want to frolic in a no-holds-barred, to–hell–with–“Page Six” environment know that Marcus Linial is their man. When he shut down his music mecca Shine, gave it a gorgeous seven-figure makeover, and reopened it as the Canal Room in September of 2003, it became an instant party destination for A-listers like Tyson Beckford, Diddy, and the Ronsons. And the stories haven’t stopped since: Lil’ Kim treating fans to a wee-bit-too-intimate view onstage, Ashton dancing on banquettes as Demi fumed nearby—a near sensory overload of spectacle for civilians usually overjoyed to catch a passing glimpse. Just remember, arriving with a video camera probably won’t endear you to the doorman.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
