Bowery Hotel's Second-Floor Bar: To Open or Not to Open?

When we first started asking after the Bowery Hotels second-floor bar in March (the one that was supposed to be the real destination rather than the guests-only lobby bar), we were told it wouldnt open to the public until at least late April. After it had its first private event on April 17, we asked again and were told the grand opening was at least a month away. Now, two months later, were told by the same rep, The second-floor space will be for private events only, and there are no plans to change that in the near future. Someone better tell the front desk when we called the hotel just now, we were told, The goal is July. So far theres no date in July, but thats how its looking. And would it be open to the public?, we asked. Yes!
