Ace Hotel Will Open Lobby Bar Next Week, Breslin in July

By

While were talking hotel restaurants, lets turn our attention to the Breslin at the Ace Hotel. According to a receptionist, the Spotted Pig team is aiming to open it sometime in July, but in the meantime the lobby bar (also operated by the Breslin folk) will open May 14 for hotel guests only. Itll be located in the back of the lobby, where theres vintage furniture and a wall salvaged from an old Park Avenue apartment. We hear the Breslin has scored an events manager from Le Bernardin, Kate Zmigrodski, and that the staff will be outfitted in Converse shoes. No word on the rest of the uniforms, but somehow we doubt theyll be as hard-core as the ones featured in the Posts slideshow of cocktail-waitress dresses at places like Rose Bar and Goldbar. Some of them look kind of like what youd wear if you answered this Craigslist ad calling for waitresses at Flashdancers, or even better, an ad calling for topless servers at a pimps and hos boat party.
