Last week I went and checked out The Bunker Club, a new underground club in the Meatpacking district. A good friend and former bartender at The Box is running the door so we went to pay our respects. And, while we weren’t sure what to expect initially, it’s a pretty sweet spot. The whole place is sort of speakeasy-ish, a discreet dingy staircase entrance leads down to an exposed brick vaulted dance hall where no sounds are coming in or out. It is a pretty big space, one long bar when you first come in, with oversized leather tufted furniture, then a checkered dance floor and additional bar towards the back. The club is definitely geared towards bottle service, but chilled out drinks at the bar include specialty cocktails like the Army & Navy, Moscow Mule, and Diamond Merchant. Oh yeah, and they only serve one beer: Radeberger. We were there on the early side, so it wasn’t busy yet, but the crowd was cool, the door seemed strict, and the bartenders were hot.
Brought to us by the same people from The Beatrice, which we all loved so much and miss even more, I think The Bunker Club shows high hopes of becoming our next favorite smoke filled you-know-what-infused late night party spot.
Doors open at 10.
