I Love the 90's

90's Boom:

New York is opening its first '90s-themed nightclub, complete with Monica cocktails, a "Basic Instinct" room and a VIP booth set inside a white Bronco - an homage to O.J.'s famous car chase.

"We're seeing so much of the '90s get regurgitated now," says owner Robert Wattman, who named his new space Nerveana, partly after grunge behemoth Nirvana.

That crowd might be difficult to cultivate, given such down-market cocktails as the John Wayne Bobbitt ("A Cut Above the Rest"), the Titanic ("It Will Take You Down") and, of course, the O.J. ("It's to Die for") - as well as his patrons' propensity for "singing in unison."

There is also small room at the club devoted to hip-hop, decorated with murals of Tupac, Eazy-E, P. Diddy and the Notorious B.I.G., needs to be stocked with 40-ounce bottles of malt liquor.

Also this week, VH1 is premiering "I Love the '90s, Part Deux" - a follow-up to its highly rated "I Love the '90s" specials. There are '90s nights at clubs from New York (the Cellar's "OK Cola" party) to D.C. (The Black Cat's "My So-Called '90s"), as well as best-selling '90s compilation CDs.

You Said

As much as I enjoyed both "I Love the 90s" series, I still think it's way too early to have a retrospective. C'mon - we're not even halfway through the Willenium.

Basic Instinct room? Is that where rich people can do coke and have care-free sex in a cathedral-like club? Or would that be too 70s? :-p

You KNOW I'm headed there . . .

Iceman, I am jealous you are in NY to witness such debauchery firsthand. Were the 90's even that great of a decade? Yes they were, and I only wish I could remember more of them.

We'll have to pay him a visit, Ren :)

Says: Lawren at January 21, 2005 10:09 AM

sounds fun :)

Ahhh...that takes me back to those Way Bitchin' 80s nights at clubs ten years ago. :)

I'm awaiting your arrival. Can't wait to sit in the Bronco. I think I was the only person I knew who thought OJ was innocent at the time. I've since changed my views, don't worry. On another note, is the Vogue now incluing '90s songs in its Retro Rewind on Wednesday nights? Haven't been there in awhile . . . a long while.
