Experimental Cocktail Club Opening on Chrystie at Month’s End
We figured it was time for an update on the cross-pond nightclub exchange currently in the works on Chrystie Street. As reported back in mid-October, Paris-based “speakeasy” Experimental Cocktail Club is renovating 191 Chrystie, formerly Kush, for its third international outpost behind London.

In the interim, a large plywood shed has pretty much been the norm, with the interior build-out completely hidden from public view. Sources familiar with the situation confirm recent reports that the Experimental Cocktail Club will be opening its doors by the end of February. That’s two months later than those ambitious December goals.
Another interesting transatlantic tidbit from the Urban Junkies post is that NIMBY favorite La Esquina is poised to open a London locale later this summer. Co-owner Derek Sanders will reportedly run the operation.
