Face it. If Page Six isn't the least bit interested in your life, you're not getting into Kos. A small, exclusive lounge on the Bowery, Kos's appeal lies in that you can't get in to see what you're missing (which, to tell the truth, isn't much). On our way inside, we witnessed a group of three attractive girls get turned away at the door. "Three attractive girls!" we thought. "The place must be packed." But the club was so empty you could hear an echo. The front room is lined with couches and tables, with a DJ booth in one corner and a bar area further back. There's also a plush room dubbed the "Kitty Box," where the mega VIPs (Bruce Willis, P. Diddy, Steven Tyler, Mary Kate Olsen, et al.) mingle. As expected, the wait staff is drop-dead, and if you make the cut, there's a certain thrill about hanging out in a place your friends can't get into. Co-owners Lenny Kravitz and Denzel Washington lend the club its air of celebrity, and it's strictly their set Kos is looking to attract. Bungalow 8 did it, but whether Kos can succeed while catering to such a small (though good-looking) gene pool remains to be seen.

Extra

Although Kravitz claims the lounge is named for Kosciuszko St. in Bed-Stuy, it is also a fairly dirty word in Farsi.
