In remaking the former Brite Bar, real-estate hedge-funders and first-time club owners Anthony Piazza and Bobby Kim went in a more casual direction, refinishing a wood floor and exposed brick, extending the kitchen’s pub-grub offerings to all night, and replacing the old floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall front windows with velvet curtains. But then they also restored a ceiling fresco that used to function as a gaslight chandelier in 1847, when the building was a hotel. The piece features a devil flanked by two angels that now changes colors; they like to keep it devil-red at nights. Otherwise, Velour shares many elements of the Chelsea club scene: roped off banquettes, flat screens, flashing lights, blaring pop, and miniskirted young things tottering on four-inch-heels.
