Boom Boom Room No More

We recently wrote an article about the Boom Boom Room, New York’s newest hotspot.  Andre Balasz opened up the bar this year during fashion week.  It rested on the 18th floor of his hotel, The Standard Hotel.  The opening night drew all sorts of celebrities, from Lindsay Lohan, to Madonna, to Jon Bon Jovi.  Everything seemed to be going great for the bar.  Unfortunately, The Boom Boom Room does not exist anymore.  BlackBook Magazine's Steve Lewis got the inside scoop on the disappearance of The Boom Boom Room and what is now in its place.

The Boom Boom Room venue has recently changed its name after receiving a cease-and-desist letter from a San Francisco music venue with the same name.  The creators of the Boom Boom Room told Steve Lewis that they “were sort of trying out the name but decided we need a new one ... we didn't realize how many other ‘Boom Boom Rooms’ were out there, one of the names Andre Balazs is considering is QT, as in on the QT."

As a result, the new name for The Boom Boom Room is QT, meaning “on the quiet.”  It is in the exact same place as the Boom Boom Room, located in the Standard Hotel on 848 Washington Street.  It is still decked with floor to ceiling windows, still gives a magnificent 360-degree view of Manhattan and the Hudson River and still is attracting people from all over.
