Club Mystique Changes Name to Chrystie 141

Posted on: October 24th, 2011 at 6:18 am by

Mystique hasn’t any left.

Public reception on the Lower East Side to Club Mystique has been fairly flat since it opened at 141 Chrystie in late July.  Neighbors weren’t enthused by the idea and we fielded a number of reader responses echoing similar sentiments.  Not even nightlife connoisseurs at Blackbook could get on board with what was happening here. Their scathing review post-launch cited the bar as being like “a time machine that whisked me back to 1981, maybe somewhere in Jersey,” with guests that “were all trying to figure out how long they had to stay to be polite to their promoter hosts.”

Needless to say it comes as no surprise that Mystique is already changing it up.  A tipster informs us that the nightclub recently changed its name to reflect the address – Chrystie 141. The old domain now forwards to the new site,  Seems like the same shitshow under different identity.
