Barracuda Redesign: What Do You Kids Think?

Barracuda is the long-running gay lounge, complete with drag entertainment, which has helped keep Chelsea from being yesterday's gay bastion of boozey brassiness.

But when I dropped by the place recently -- to the delight of millions -- I remember thinking, "They could use a little bit of a redesign here. Just a tad of a spruce-up, you know?"

Well, I went home, clicked my heels three times, and went to bed singing ABBA tunes, and when I awoke, it had been magically done!

And here it is!

You like?

I do adore the portrait wall that includes everyone from Phil Spector to a real clown.

And it looks like the paintings are even on velvet!

Could anything be more boozily, brassily gay?

Can the new look save Barracuda? Some new drag queens would help too.

I love that they switch this up every year or so. Makes me want to always go back.

Long overdue but they lost me years ago when the pleasant but hapless happy hour bartender insisted on playing Fleetwood Mac-ish mixes. Plus, the toilets were a stinking mess.

Hey Alex, it has been awhile since MM posted your photos.

Are you still doing fashion shoots (hope the wasted, anorexic, debauched youths phase is behind you) and did you ever get your hands on an 'Absinthe Fountain'?
