The place is called The Trilby. And from all we've seen and heard about the place, it sounds like a major toolville.
Exhibit No. 2:
As usual, UrbanDaddy spreads the smarmalade on a little too thick:
You’ll want to incorporate this spot as a before, after or in-between option for when you find yourself turned around in the Bowery. A place where you’ll order up the namesake cocktail (scotch, sweet vermouth and Parfait d’Amour), pair it with some Mini Short Rib Sandwiches and make yourself at home on a broken-in vintage couch for a few hours.
And as one might expect from a room of predominantly reclaimed wood, it’ll expand in the summer. The banquettes, settees and even boozy pots of mussels will all be moved outside into the garden.
Oh boy. This should provide a whole new installment of Notes from the Backside.
Oh, and the arrival of the Shrillby explains this.

effin creepy. i can just picture all the twenty-somethings trying to laugh it up and not look at the painting. would be interested in filming the patrons seated there and watch their body language to see how much they turn their bodies away from it.
What kind of awful drugs was this designer on when his toadies told him this was a good idea? ketamine? poppers?
Can't wait to read the drooly, oh-so-insouciant review that tool Sam Sifton will undoubtedly shower upon this horrorshow. zIt looks like the perfect blend of fatuous, bland and "upscale" that he so adores.
No interest in the bar or whatever but I LOVE that art. I see so many comments talking about what art is good and bad in the LES/EV here and can't understand why only certain styles are on the imaginary "acceptable" list.
So many questions, so little interest in the answers. Why would one expect "a room of predominately reclaimed wood" to expand? Will fratboys ever tire of mini-sandwiches and mini-burgers and other mini meathead foods? Why is the creepy figure with the pocketwatch wearing a bowler instead of a trilby?
@nygrump: My guess is Nyquil and crystal meth. Anybody else?
does the daddy ever give a bad review?
@Marty - Ha! Now there's a combo!
Toolville! Couldn't have said it better!
What does "find yourself turned around in the Bowery" mean? Is Parfait d'Amour a euphemism for...oh never mind.
Is this going to be the NEW MARS BAR
