Mystique Unveils Decorated Facade on Chrystie Street

Posted on: May 12th, 2011 at 6:39 am by

Yesterday afternoon, the lattice of scaffolding attached to the facade of 141 Chrystie Street was dismantled.  Contractors subsequently unveiled a strange decorative masonry pattern adorning the future club Mystique, no doubt adding to its overall, dare we say, mystique.  Gone is the brickwork of yore, and instead replaced with the smooth sandstone look. And yes, the facade is still windowless.

Love or loathe it, this bad boy now sticks out like a sore thumb.

Upon opening later this spring, Mystique will definitely appeal to the club-going set.  One need only listen to the invasive background music on their website.  Renderings published there advertise an uber-trendy layout that screams “bottle service.”  Time will tell.  Meanwhile, the application for a full liquor license with the State Liquor Authority is still pending.
