UD - Art and Pool at Lit Lounge
FUSION

Art and Pool at Lit Lounge

East Village drinking treasure Lit Lounge once had a space called Fuse Gallery. You could see and buy new art. Now it’s gone. Get over it. Because Fuse Room’s here. It’s basically Fuse Gallery, but with a bunch of murals. Also a pool table. Progress marches on.

UD - Le Bilboquet Is Back
BILBO BAGGINS

Le Bilboquet Is Back

You’re familiar with the phrase “back with a vengeance.” Like when an Upper East Side French institution—say, Le Bilboquet—closes, and then opens back up in a sexy new spot with twice the space. That would be a prime example.

UD - European Handsomeness in SoHo
JUST COS

European Handsomeness in SoHo

COS: H&M’s much nicer passion project. But you can’t get it here. Or you couldn’t, anyway—Opening Ceremony’s brought some handsome cashmere sweaters and wool topcoats from the much-coveted brand stateside. No word on if it’s duty-free.

411:

Through Nov 10, COS Pop-Up at Opening Ceremony, 35 Howard St (between Crosby and Broadway), 212-219-2688

Monday
