The celebration of the first issue of CODE NYC MAG continues, this time in the LES at the RUMPUS ROOM located at 249 Eldridge Street. This iconic, hip and cozy late night club and lounge is an amazing albeit small space, but it makes up with it’s charm and wonderful music spun by the DJ and co-owner Gabriel.

I just can’t say how much fun this place was, hanging out with Carl Van Nevius III, talking business and partying along with club co-owner Adrian Weber, music producer Vince McCartney, vocalist and songwriter Stephen, and rocker Natasha Komis and the legendary iconic producer, “Rick Rubin” of Run DMC and Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way” remake fame.

I was so impressed with the music that the DJ was spinning I almost forgot why I was there, as I enjoyed hits from the Smiths, David Bowie, Berlin, Jackson Five, and all my favorite rock classics that have special meaning for me and many others.

As I talked with one of the owners Adrian, he told me to my delight that on Sundays they have a special “Smiths Sunday” every week, music to my ears for a Morrissey fan like myself. After Midnight the place was packed with hip young professionals, that it was hard to leave (Literally).
Occupying the same space as the old “Sapphire Lounge” where I used to hang out at, who can ask for anything more. The Rumpus Room is truly” where the wild things are!”
