Bar Above Cabin, Denis Rosen, Sasha Petraske and New York’s Toughest Doors

The NYN Club Report for February 4, 2010
Compiled by Gamal Hennessy

…I hunt down the nightlife news so you don’t have to…

Bar above Cabin
(Urban Daddy)
The owners of Bowery Electric and Niagara hide a speakeasy…on top of another speakeasy.

Coming Soon
Pain Killer
East Side Company is transforming itself from a speakeasy to a tiki bar, because while we have plenty of speakeasies, we don’t have many tiki bars.

Toughest Doors in NYC
(Club Planet)
Taryn Haight offers her list of the best places in New York that you can’t get into

Denis Rosen
(Crain’s New York)
The new chairman of the State Liquor Authority has already
reduced the backlog of pending applications by 35% in the first few months of his tenure. Now he is pushing to change liquor laws that haven’t been updated since the end of Prohibition in the 1930s. New York might finally be getting an executive in the SLA who actually wants to support and enhance New York nightlife.

Sasha Petraske
The local cocktail legend (Little Branch, Milk and Honey, East Side Company) is running away from CB 3 to open his latest venue in Midtown East.
