Maro – Oct 18th & 19th, 2006

135 Liberty Street

Off the beaten path, and far away from clubland, on a road that screams of eclecticism, lies Maro, the only club/restaurant on Liberty street.  We visited this recently opened place during Fashion Week and we were impressed with not only the decor, but with the turn out.

Maro is a large, well appointed large space with a lofty VIP section that allows you to see and be seen.  High ceilings prevent it from feeling cozy, even with the throngs of people present, but there is a glam factor to the place.  The main room was turned from a restaurant by day with table and chairs into a runway for Hibebe’s designs.   We took our time inspecting the two bars that served up various concoctions, or was it three bars?  We had free drink tickets but, we kept being directed to a mysterious bar at the end of the venue that we never did find. 

As I have already mentioned Maro was packed with industry people and party revelers alike who were there to see Hibebe’s line of clothing.  However the show was over an hour late in starting, and by that time our group had already lost interest.  We had our own party going in the VIP and things were feeling much better for us than for the rest of the people who would not budge from their places near the runway.  The sound system is decent enough, and so was the DJ, serving up a blend of house with hard rock as well!

Overall, the space has a lot of potential and we will have to go back again.
