The Thompson LES officially morphed into SIXTY LES last year. Owner Jason Pomeranc sold the boutique hotel brand but maintained control of a few properties, including this one at 190 Allen Street.

A so-called “rooftop reimagining” has been in the works since January, yet was kept under wraps. Until now. Enter Tiki Tabu, a pop-up “bar project” headed by some nightlife big-wigs. Jon Neidich (Tijuana Picnic, ACME) joined forces with mixologist Jim Kearns to impart a “bright explosion of Hawaiian kitsch” atop the Lower East Side. Travis Bass is also reportedly involved in the endeavor.

Menu is what you’d expect – summertime cocktails and food supplied by Blue Ribbon (also located at the Sixty LES).

Tiki Tabu is open daily from 5pm til “late.” Embattled Hell Square neighbors probably won’t be pleased with the lineup of “established DJs” planned for partying “later in the evening.”

We’ll leave you with this PR blabber…

At the epicenter of downtown Manhattan’s vibrant new renaissance in food, music, art and culture; TikiTabu aims to add to the fun-defining neighborhood of the Lower East Side, evoking the youthful spirit of its all-hours neighborhood with a fusion of serious drinks and serious fun.
