A Review: Bedlam

Named after London’s infamous psychiatric hospital, this eclectic bar on Avenue C opened a month ago with visitors including Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick for the opening.   It’s not every night you’ll find these kind of A-listers in a dimly lit East Village bar.  This couple added a bit of glamour to the sea of plaid and combat boots.    Opened by Benjamin Maisani, boyfriend to Anderson Cooper, and Pablo Raimondi, the walls at Bedlam are lined in vintage Victorian era novels and dictionaries, scientific and natural history artifacts, and a giant moose head attracting attention.  There is a decent sized dance floor behind the bar, featuring guest DJ’s for a mix of classics and current hits.  The intimate back room is perfect for private events (which can accommodate up to 150 guests) or to sip a gingered Whiskey Smash with a handsome stranger.  This venue is perfect for your upcoming birthday party.  Possibly my upcoming birthday party.  So, head east to Avenue C for a night of dancing and debauchery (and maybe a glimpse at Anderson Cooper).  
Bedlam. 40 Avenue C.
