Tucked inside the ostentatious Trump Soho Hotel, Kastel is an upscale, rather obnoxious lounge decked out with synthetic alligator skin stools, chain-link curtains, a faux-marble bar top, and a polished, track-lit floor. A DJ delivers low-key house music through a top-of-the-line sound system while a well-dressed clientele perches at tables ringed by leather banquettes, ordering from tight-skirted servers peddling exotic cocktails, a “sipping list” boasting samples of 60-year-old Scotch, and $1500 bottles of Cristal. Riff raff beware: the bouncers enforce a "VIP-only" policy starting at 10 p.m.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
