Hudson Hotel, part of the Morgans Hotel Group, has a new venue in an older space called Henry. Live music, spacious seating and new decor add downtown feel to an almost uptown place near Columbus Circle.

A downtown crowd surprised everyone thanks in part to Scene Network’s, Oliver Evans (originally from London), who procured an attractive list of attendees.

Paul Sevigny DJ’d (brother of Chloe Sevigny) adding to the slightly IN CROWD or socially HIP. It will be interesting to see how the venue progresses throughout the season.
