In theory, Remote Lounge is pretty cool: A high-tech wonderland of cameras and Cosmopolitans, in which the '50s-kitsch console at your table lets you spy on people throughout the bar, and contact other tables through the built-in telephone handset. In reality, however, Remote is an occasionally awkward theme bar, in which the attention-grabbing technology is the only thing to talk about, your neighbors aren’t worth spying on, and those Cosmos? At $10-12, a bit overpriced. Still, there are times—early evenings, Sundays, certain events—when Remote transforms into something otherworldly. You sit among the lights and monitors, catch flashes of color on the plasma screens, absorb some avant-garde DJs abstract beats, and wonder if this blissful cyber-scene will last forever.DJ
Fri.–Sat., 10 p.m.–4 a.m.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
