What you see here is a construction Dumpster containing the disco detritus (everything from LPs to bar stools to the happy-happy drink tickets pictured) from defunct clubs Spirit and BED — a metaphor for the death of West 27th Street if ever there was one. Also spotted on the block yesterday, a posting on Bungalow’s door: “Bungalow 8 will be closed Saturday, July 7th until Tuesday, July 10th for renovations.”
As usual, Bungalow is undergoing its yearly touching-up, done in the summer while people are out-of-town. No major redesign, but humdrum stuff like paint and fabric touch-up — freshen up the palm trees and some new furniture pieces from Bo Concept. The floors are getting redone, hence the closing. It will be open by Wednesday.
