Merde: Hotel Le Bleu’s Le Vue Still Closed

December 30th, 2008 · 2 Comments

This one kind of fell through the cracks before the holidays, as a reader wrote us about going to Hotel Le Bleu on Fourth Avenue seeking to imbibe at the lounge on the top floor. As readers may know, we’ve been calling it Tres, Tres, Tres Bleu because the whole freaking hotel is lit up in blue. The restaurant and lounge, however, which were last said to be opening in November (we thought they meant 2008) are MIA. Our reader writes:

restaurant/bar atop le bleu STILL not open. went for drink last night and dude in lobby said “it’s built, it’s ready, but it’s not open. i don’t know why.” what’s the story? kind of a giant waste, no?

Well, we’d certainly been anticipating it in a big way, but some things take so long you have no reason to look forward to them anymore.

    You’d think they would want it open for NYE. The view for fireworks is probably more than half-way decent.

    At least one can always go next door for either some dialysis or a taxi-driving job. C’est si bon! La vie boheme! Laissez les bon temps rouler! Zut alors! Allons-y!
