You Are Not Here, Matt Tait, Flaneur
Urbanite Matt Tait examines the recent New York City trend of bars and clubs stealing the accoutrements of 'quaintly outmoded blue-collar business[es].' In Flaneur, the online magazine dedicated to celebrating urban living, Tait prods at the idea of the beauty salon-cum-bar, at the exclusivity and campiness of it all. 'And because of my recently increased access,' he writes, 'my gut feeling ... has become a reasoned conviction that these places are disingenuous, one more smokescreen afforded by the exact demographic that could do with one less.'
