Don Hill, R.I.P.
Thanks to a timely reboot from Nur Khan and Paul Sevigny—and the welcome reintroduction of a little good old grit to New York’s occasionally fussy nightlife scene—a new generation of party people discovered Don Hill’s, the west Soho club that’s once again a fixture of the fashion circuit. (In earlier days, it hosted Leigh Lezark and the Misshapes’ weekly party; before that, it was a rock stronghold.) The club that bears his name soldiers on, but Hill himself (left, with Sevigny) reportedly passed away last night in New York. Twitter is already streaming tributes and remembrances from friends like Moby, Bebe Buell, and drag eminences Miss Guy and Murray Hill, all of whom have passed through Hill’s doors. They’re still open—the legacy lives on.
