You Are Not Here

You Are Not Here, Matt Tait,
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.’
