The genius of Wu-Tang was that each member was able to individually shine without destroying the integrity of the Clan -- leaving their only threats death, and How High?. Letting each member put his booze foot forward, NoChance Productions, opening Loft Six Ten
From the four-man team behind Goodbar, Cortland's Garage, and The Stretch, Loft's named for both its two-story airiness, and NoChance partner/Loft visionary Brad Tice's actual height; devoid of flatscreens, the spot's intended purely for partying, with an L-shaped walnut downstairs bar, exposed brick walls w/ cutouts showcasing decorative Maker's bottles, and a massive, rustic six-pronged gear turned chandelier. To ensure said partying, they're slinging 15 tall and stiff specialty cocktails (from the Carolina Sweet Tea vodka/lemonade "Nashville" to the Cachaca 51/Goldschlager "Havana") and 50 bottles & cans (including raunchy American crafts Flying Dog Doggie Style and Founders Dirty Bastard), plus Spaten, Beck's, and Heineken five-liter mini-kegs, because there comes a time when Emmanuel Lewis has to take a stand. Elevated comfort fare comes from an ex-Brasserie Ruhlmann chef, much of it hooch-inflected, e.g.: Guinness cheese dip w/ handmade soft pretzels, beer-steamed mussels, hanger steak w/ fried shallots & country red wine demi, and Maker's BBQ-sauced lamb lollipops (lick it too intently, and the Owl will totally barf).
Weekends, entertainment'll be provided by name-brand Chi Djs spinning hard rock, 80s jams, and old school hip hop from an elevated DJ booth accessible only by ladder -- prompting envious patrons to gripe, "What are U, God or something?".
