Louie & Chan, 303 Broome St.

Neighbors, pay heed. The cellar club at Louie & Chan is now officially operational. Public launch was last night.

This new nightspot at 303 Broome Street is divided into two components – cocktail lounge and the303. The latter is a venue of sorts that will “host a customized lineup of International eclectic talent and performances comprised of the best of the best non-mainstream DJ artists.” Rest easy, though, they have a “state-of-the-art bespoke sound system.”

Press babble calls the subterranean hangout the NEW Lower East Side hotspot…

A one-of-a-kind restaurant & multi-faceted venue hybrid, Louie & Chan is a place where the unexpected & exciting collide in a refreshing environment, conveying the originality of an establishment that brings to life that eclectic and diverse New York State of mind.

Blah blah blah. Honestly, if you need a thousand words to describe your new place, it’s not all that…
