In the News: Inside the Haus Nightclub

••• UrbanDaddy previews Haus, “an opulent new Tribeca cornerstone of serious dancing.” It’s the nightclub opening at W. Broadway and Canal, where Canal Room was. “It’s all brought to you by a gent who helped open Brooklyn dance palace Output. Here, he’s thoughtfully surrounded you with the proper lighting (chandeliers that undulate through 16 million colors) and crowd (the types who make a living adorning magazine covers).” Uh, huh. Funny about that Output part—there was zero mention of it when Haus presented itself as a “mixology lounge” at Community Board 1.

••• A rave for Bâtard. —New York Observer

••• “A knife-wielding thief made off with 40 cans of Red Bull from a Tribeca 7-Eleven after threatening to slit a store employee’s throat.” It was the one on Broadway. —DNAinfo

••• Regarding the Jade Hotel, coming to where the Best Western on Peck Slip was: “The space’s 40,000 square feet will be peppered with antique American furniture and a modern design based on historical outlines, a style which Mr. Obeid described as ‘nostalgia inspired by Colonial Williamsburg.’ The space is also slated to feature a swanky new seafood restaurant, outdoor seating and a sophisticated cocktail bar.” —New York Observer

••• “After being shot down in April, the team representing the Howard Hughes Corporation returned to the Landmarks Preservation Commission with a revised proposal to makeover the 1983 Fulton Market Building at the South Street Seaport. The commission said the edited design, created by SHoP Architects, is “less mall-y” than the first iteration, and it won their approval, putting it on the road to reality.” —Curbed
