Michael Winsch of the Bowery Ballroom has given the bi-level space that once housed Cattyshack a butch makeover. He teamed up with Brian Harkenrider (a former Bowery manager) to open what you might or might not consider a sports bar — “we’re not necessarily going to call ourselves a sports bar,” says Harkenrider, “but we have a bunch of flat-screens.” Ten of them, to be exact. But sports isn't the only focus here: With a new stage and soundboard intact, the first floor hosts the sort of live bands you’d expect to see at the Bowery Ballroom’s sister club, Mercury Lounge. Upstairs, a bar offers nightly $3 drink specials, and Cattyshack’s roof deck remains.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
