The Jane Ballroom Reopens Amid Peace and Quiet

The Jane Ballroom is reopen, everyone, and this time, they’re determined not to get shut down. Eater was the new, more demure bar last night, and pointed out several measures operators Matt Kliegman and Carlos Quirarte are taking to avoid the wrath of their prissy neighbors this time around. Take not everyone. They’re not fucking around.

For starters, the club has a “new and improved door staff” who are stationed inside the building this time. Brilliant! Furthermore, “all guest decisions will be made inside the building and not on the street,” which means you’ll at least have the sensation of being let in before getting turned away. Painful, but necessary. Inside, the scene was “laid back and festive, with a small crowd on hand for the re-openng.” That probably has less to do with their new low-key MO than with the fact that everyone was at the Boom Boom Room for last night’s Met Gala after party. Everyone but us (we were, um, sick?). They also took away some speakers and played classic rock at “at a comfortable level.” The final impression of the new Jane was that it was “tranquil and quaint.” See you at the Jane, everyone!
