Add a koi pond, some palm trees and a wood patio to a New York roof, and you probably get to raise the drink prices by a few bucks (see: The Delancey). Add those things (minus the koi pond) to your Greenpoint venue, and maybe people will start going (see: Studio B).
A press release was sent last week stating: "This May, Studio B will expand to a new full floor rooftop level, featuring an extra large bar area and a full sound system. The coolest thing about the new floor -- Studio B has built a retractable glass roof so that you can take a break from the main room, or relax under the stars, all year round, rain or shine, summer or winter."
Now the NY Post has a shot of the palm trees being raised to this future urban paradise, but warn "certain Greenpoint locals expressed concern that the introduction of fresh air and plant life would make the club's already rowdy patrons even rowdier." How long before noise complaints shut it down? The club's first blow-out with the roof is on May 2nd and features Brazilian Girls and Spank Rock.
