Suzie Wong Gives Us a Case of Déjà Vu


We're not saying they look similar, but

When we first told you about Suzie Wong, the lounge nightlife lord JE Englebert and his partners are opening this Thursday in their old Pre:Post space at 547 West 27th Street, we noted that Lotus once had a caf named after the fictitious hooker with a heart of gold. That said, youd think Lord Englebert would make sure his logo looks nothing like Lotuss! Or are we the only ones who see the resemblance? And are we the only ones who are hesitant to visit a sake lounge that spells it saki? Sure, its technically an acceptable alternative, but were not surprised its the preferred spelling of someone whose other club is Myst [sic].
