A hideously run "club" this spot is in our guide only so the omission is not glaring. And we are fans of Serge Becker, from whom we expect more than this. But perhaps one man cannot do it all; after all La Esquina and The Box right next door must keep him super busy. Too busy perhaps to find the proper managers. After giving the former 6's and 8's a 60s-wannabe facelift, it's amateur-hour at this basement-esque room where the staff don't seem to have any training in nightlife whatsoever. Starting with the door, a complete mess, where some nights even the DJ spinning can't get in, to inside where there seems to be no policing of illicit activities. But pride cometh before a fall and so we wonder how long the downtown set, notoriously fickle, will put up with unjustified arrogance wrapped in silver foil, exposed pipes and freight-elevator décor. Here's hoping that co-owner Aaron Bondaroff (A-Ron of aNYthing) will jump ship before the Jersey-transported kids (who've reinvented themselves as hipsters, courtesy of black hair dye and weedwacker haircuts) take him down with them.
