Tammany Hall is making a return to the area, only this time as a swanky nightspot. Zagat reported yesterday that Backstage Bar was only a temporary incarnation of the 152 Orchard Street venue to capitalize on the CMJ Festival last month. Which makes sense, considering the entire place was completely out of sorts during the […]

Live music lives on at 152 Orchard Street. It’s almost as if the Doghouse Saloon never even existed. Those short-lived nine months but a fleeting memory. Now three months after the closure of the hot dog frathole, the owners of Backstage Bar, who are also behind Crash Mansion, pick up where the Annex left off. […]

Nigh on a week after the demise of the Doghouse Saloon at 152 Orchard Street, we now have the early word on the heir to the throne, as it were. Get ready for Backstage, a new bar/music venue which promises to bolster the endangered Lower East Side music scene.

Well, well. That was a quick run for the Doghouse Saloon at 152 Orchard Street. Guess the free hot dog and beer pong gimmick didn’t work. A mere nine months into existence and the branded bar is history. Last night, workers were outside scraping the brick facade bare. And the Annex nameplate was finally removed!

And the day has arrived. Doghouse Saloon survived its month-long bout with renovations and, true to its word, is now serving again at 152 Orchard Street.

For the last few nights, the Doghouse Saloon at 152 Orchard Street has been out of commission. One hand-written sign is attached to the drawn gates, which implores Con Edison to call some dude named Morris.

Ladies and gentlemen, Doghouse Saloon is officially official. Indeed, after six months catering to the frat set at 152 Orchard Street, proper signage is finally in place. “The Doghouse” is now stenciled across the security gate housing.

Doghouse Saloon might have some new cartoon signage and even an official events board, but The Annex still has dibs on 152 Orchard Street. At least until the decorative plate is removed from the black brick exterior.

Once upon a time The Annex was a loud party joint which showcased tons of live music. Lines would queue outside until all hours of the night. Now the joint is history. Indeed, 152 Orchard Street has been quietly rechristened Doghouse Saloon (seriously?). Proclaiming themselves “drinking consultants,” this new frat-hole replacement allegedly has ten TVs, […]
