New Life For Rawhide Leather Bar

Categories: Nightlife

As you know, Rawhide--the leather establishment that's drawn fetishists and their fans to Chelsea since 1979--is being squeezed out because the landlord practically doubled the rent.

But the buzz you've heard is true:

The leather lives on!

A month or two after their March 31 closing, the joint will resurface on 58th and 3rd, on the same stretch of land as the mature-man's piano bar the Townhouse and the godforsaken Evolve.

Eventually, I bet they'll all be under one roof as a strip mall called Twisted Sisters, and it'll include a Chipotle. I hope!

"the same stretch of land"...just to clarify for the "comprehension-impaired"....no, that doesn't mean the SAME block as...

And the leather queens can stop crying and stomping their feet and pulling what's left of their hair out.
