This small, square space has played host to more than a few forgettable dance lounges. (Climax? Delft?) But its latest incarnation has a good amount of cred via owner Eric Lozano who founded Cielo (which he’s left) and partner Theo Chauveau who was part of the team behind Chaos and Spy. Their joint effort, a stripped-down room of purple brick walls and sprouting fronds, mercifully bucks the bottle-service trend which Chauveau helped transfer from St. Tropez to Manhattan in the mid-90s. No $15 cocktails. No America’s Next Top Model waitresses. Just several disco balls raining spangles on a handsome hardwood floor that inevitably gets filled with funky, attractive downtowners personally selected by the doorman. Crisp, clean, well-spaced speakers deliver deep house with bone-rattling bass and when that proves loud, a basement with two stretch banquettes awaits.
