    Retreat Team Takes Over Marion’s and M&R, Opens ‘Semi-Private’ Down by the Hipster is wondering what’s up with Antik, the “semi-private cocktail lounge” (whatever that means) coming to the former Marion’s Continental space. We’ve confirmed that it’s owned by Larry Kramer and Craig Koening, who have already opened King’s Cross, an upscale pub, in the building’s basement (formerly M&R). It’ll open to the public March 21, after a press party on the 19th, and in addition to red-velvet wallpaper and black chandeliers (why not? If the antique theme worked for the Bowery Hotel across the street…), it’ll have no visible bar — up 150 patrons will give their orders to sexy cocktail waitresses who will disappear into a black box to fetch them.
