(Le) Poisson Rouge:
Just when you thought all artistic integrity had been sucked out of NYC’s cookie-cutter nightlife, Greenwich Village gets a performance space fit for orchestras and punk rockers alike. (Le) Poisson Rouge is touting itself as a multimedia cabaret with a décor inspired by 1920’s Paris. The black and red interior features a fish tank chandelier in the entrance (with red fish, of course) and the main concert hall includes two film screens and two elevated VIP opera boxes. Founded by classical musicians who met at Manhattan School of Music (composer/violinist David Handler and cellist/teacher Justin Kantor), the historic, Art Deco 800-capacity venue (formerly the Village Gate) is a tribute to music’s role as a cultural focal point. Architectural acoustician John Storyk from Electric Lady Studios and Jazz @ Lincoln Center outfitted the space with top-notch sound equipment, and the eclectic gigs keep on comin'. Open Sun.-Wed. 12pm-2am, Thu.-Sat. 12pm-4am.
