Wong Again

Sake Bottle Service on 27th Street

You're generally reluctant to brave the nighttime crowds in West Chelsea.

A little welcome change to the beverage service landscape might pique your curiosity enough to venture over there, though. Behold: Sake bottle service. Suzie Wong, the new/old kid in the recently revamped Pre:Post space, is the first nightclub/lounge to include the drink in bottle form, and you know you can't miss that kind of history-making excitement.

The space is über-Chinese kitsch—think Hong Kong-style underground den of iniquity, replete with red lanterns, stained red floors, red brocade banquettes, tasseled curtains and Chinese symbols everywhere. "Asian-themed entertainment" will be a part of the lounge scene—although we're not sure quite what that will entail, we have heard mention of undulating geishas on small elevated stages and a potential 8-foot-tall Asian drag queen (we'll take two bottles for that, please).

They also offer fittingly over-orientalized drink monikers like Geisha (muddled Asian pear, Kissui vodka, plum sake) and Madame Butterfy (Kishi plum sake, muddled apricot topped with a sparking sake float), for those who prefer their sake in cocktail form. Not to mention the dim sum menu, which takes the naming scheme to a new level with the Love U Long Time choose-your-own dim sum Pu Pu platter.

Obviously not something you want to be ordering from the 8-foot-tall Asian drag queen.
