The Delancey’s rooftop is one of our favorite outdoor venues, so we’re excited to hear that sister club Studio B will be opening a rooftop bar this season. Permits are still being worked on, but an opening party is planned for May 2 at 9 p.m., with live performances from Brazilian Girls, Spank Rock, and D.J. sets by the Rub and Roxy Cottontail (advance tickets are available online, at TicketWeb).
We’ve heard “actual-size” palm trees are being installed, though it remains to be seen whether there will be a burbling pond à la Delancey. Nevertheless, the rooftop bar will have its own sound system and a retractable glass ceiling, so if all goes according to plan, it’ll be open during event nights year-round.
