Viktor & Spoils Taqueria Opening Inside Hotel on Rivington Thursday

Loisaida is the linguistic Latino corruption of Lower East Side, but is typically the neighborhood designation reserved for Alphabet City. Now the nightlife honchos south of Houston are exploiting it to sell a new taqueria concept opening inside the Hotel on Rivington this Thursday. According to a web-flyer in our inbox, Viktor & Spoils represents “the newest Loisaida,” and will replace the old CV Lounge. The pun-heavy taco den promises plenty of expensive eats and cocktails.

Introducing Viktor & Spoils, a late-night den of Mexican delights in the Hotel on Rivington where the floor, walls, ceiling and bar once belonged to an actual Vermont dairy barn, opening Thursday.

If a taco truck crashed into the world’s largest pile of reclaimed farm wood, you’d end up with this place (or a gigantic fire). There’s an entryway fashioned out of flattened food-cart metal and a wall made of brightly backlit bottles of Jarritos. Oh, and nachos. Lots and lots of nachos.
