Name This Bar!

Last week we fell upon a really chic-looking new space at 422 Hudson Street, right next to the old Anglers & Writers space in the West Village, now taken over by Out of the Kitchen! (their exclamation point, not ours). The sign above the fa����ade now reads �������Candy Store Caf����,������� but the owners haven��������t settled on a name. If you��������re looking for a glass of wine and some cheese in an elegant, but minimal setting��������the wooden and wrought iron-laced bar is �������O�������-shaped and just plain lovely��������this is the place. It��������s airy and simple with a chandelier made of wine bottles and a tin ceiling. So far, few even know it exists. We talked to the proprietors and they are considering naming it �������By the Bottle,������� but frankly we��������re not that into the name. Something��������s not jibing, no? We told them we liked �������Leroy��������s,������� but they weren��������t biting. It��������s across from the Printing House Gym. Check it out, and throw us your own suggestions. Whoever comes up with the best name will get a free subscription to BlackBook, and we��������ll pass it on to the owners before they go and name it By the Bottle, or their other thought, By the Glass. By the Book? Oh, except for the no-smoking, this could be a pleasant alternative to nearby Hudson Bar & Books (which is playing really bad noodly-jazzy lately, instead of, say, the Stones). ��������Staff
