Speakeasy-‘Speakloudly’ Opens on Avenue B


Weekend warriors of the East Village, if youre looking for a new party spot now that the return of Superdive hangs in the balance, youre in luck: Idle Hands and Billy Hurricanes, the self-declared speakeasy-speakloudly combo that had hoped to open in the old Rehab/Midway/Scenic/Guernica/Save the Robots space back in May, has finally locked down a liquor license, and as of yesterday, its up and pouring. Now the upstairs Mardis Grasthemed bar (operated by the team behind Thunder Jacksons) is serving a limited menu, and the downstairs bourbon and beer bar is still stocking its shelves, so you may want to wait till next week, when well give you a look inside.

Idle Hands and Billy Hurricanes, 25 Avenue B, nr. 2nd St.
