Backstage Bar Rechristened Tammany Hall at 152 Orchard

Posted on: November 18th, 2010 at 12:31 pm by

Tammany Hall is making a return to the area, only this time as a swanky nightspot.  Zagat reported yesterday that Backstage Bar was only a temporary incarnation of the 152 Orchard Street venue to capitalize on the CMJ Festival last month.  Which makes sense, considering the entire place was completely out of sorts during the showcase we caught.

Once all interior work is complete, the Crash Mansion-run bar will be rechristened Tammany Hall. The new owners of the onetime Annex/Doghouse Saloon space promise “a spiffed-up space with a large stage in the main room, a Prohibition-style basement lounge and an upstairs balcony with its own bar that will feel similar to the ‘second floor of Stanton Social.'” Look out!
