Mystique Club to Open Next Week at 141 Chrystie
Back in April, we broke news that a new nightclub called Mystique was to open inside the former warehouse at 141 Chrystie Street. Onsite work has pretty much been full throttle since our report, and progress visible each day. Like the crazy facade pattern that was unveiled last month. Now Mystique is nearly ready for the big time, so brace yourself for the inevitable onslaught. Soft opening is set for July 4 weekend, with official launch a week later.
Sources on Twitter these last couple weeks revealed that Mystique has been hosting some hush-hush parties behind the longstanding plywood shed. But until now, there was really no conclusive word on a proper inauguration date. We stopped in yesterday afternoon to learn more about the operation, and scope out the digs. Aesthetically speaking, much of the first level is true to the renderings released earlier this year. It’s a rather expansive space that just oozes a condescending sense of swanky white parties and bottle service. Nothing on the Tetris-inspired walls; there are cocktail tables scattered and flanked by couches and chairs. This ground level space is considered the dining area for lunch/dinner/weekend brunch, but only until 9 pm when the kitchen closes. Convenient.
Just wait, there’s more! We are told the club also occupies the two upper levels, including a Karaoke lounge on the second floor, and another bar on the rooftop. Mystique’s rules stipulate that outdoor drinking ends at 8 pm. Only a small concession, though, considering the establishment is open seven days a week, from afternoon until 4 am.
What effect do you think their presence will have on the neighborhood?
