David Rabin Says Tenjune Will Join in Lotus, Finds Suzie Wong Logo Odd

That's just Wong: Suzie Wong of New York v. Suzy Wong of Amsterdam.


Lotus partner David Rabin has confirmed rumors that Tenjune's Mark Birnbaum and Eugene Remm will be involved in the club. The plan for the new venue and the timing are not set yet, he writes in an email to us, but it'll be a JV [joint venture]. We are enthused about Mark and Eugenes involvement. Fortunately, Lotus is still holding its own. So much so, in fact, that as we pointed out yesterday, new nightclub Suzie Wong might just have taken inspiration from Lotuss logo. The similarity in logos is more than a bit odd, Rabin says. Maybe they want to buy our old Suzie Wong neon sign at a discount? I hope they have better luck with the concept than we did. Adding to the intrigue, Down by the Hipster e-mails to point us to the logo of popular cocktail bar Suzy Wong in Amsterdam, shown above. Cue Double Vision.
