A Little Birdy had sung rumors of problems at the Eldridge, so we went right to the horse's mouth to get the low down. According to owner and visionary Matt Levine, things could not be going better. He tells DBTH:
We have opened up additional nights now that the summer is nearing an end, so we have brought in a new manager, promoted within to manage these nights at The Eldridge. Much of our staff went out East to Georgica for the summer, and will be returning come September as well. With Fashion Week blooming, VMA Weekend, and expansion with our company, ML Creative Group, and accomplishments of The Eldridge, and as well as employees growth - our events, projects and overall success has grown, and I am pleased to announce bringing in extra qualified hands to assist with everything. Our door staff has remained the same since we opened with Naeem Delbridge and Shakara Singh. We have also had the same DJ line-up, as well as majority of the same staff which shows amazing consistency in an always-changing revolving industry.
Got that? Levine also confirmed that the 'Dridge is now open on Mondays after their usual summer hiatus, and he has brought over Michka Bengio (from Le Royale and Le Souek) to handle a few nights at both the 'Dridge and LEVANTeast. In this topsy, turvy world, In Levine We Trust.
