Although not open like a regular club, they do have Paul Oakenfold opening their first New Year's. And Manhattan has the first mega event space worth writing about in a long, long time...(they insist it's a restaurant but still not serving daily chow....) Already used by Heidi Klum for her Halloween party and Louis Vuitton for their watch launch, the celebs who've traipsed through this space in the matter of their first week included Karolina Kurkova, Angie Harmon and Jason Sehorn, Lisa Ling, Puffy, and Betsey Johnson. A century ago this was the Bowery Savings Bank. Now itís an astonishing space for private red carpet functions. This place is strictly for the high class or maybe just the intensely moneyed. Full blown out Beaux architecture with Corinthian columns, an ornate ceiling and sculptures in every corner. Despite Capitale's insistence that this is a first time endeavour by a newcomer to the biz, it's everyone's thoughts on the involvement of club veterans as silent partners that make the four private rooms, three kitchens and a ballroom right for that private soiree youíve been dreaming of throwing.
