Don Hill’s Lights Up For The Night

-------

The invitation for yesterday’s late-night fête hosted by Cole Haan read: “For one night only at Don Hill’s.” It’s no surprise that such a tagline would draw a cast of nightlife veterans along with Brad Goreski, Hilary Rhoda, and even David Schwimmer to the venerable nightspot that shuttered its doors last April. Known for its graffiti-splashed walls, gritty live performances, and raucous parties, the Greenwich Street haunt reopened its doors yesterday promising one last dance party. By midnight, the bash was in full swing with Omaha-based band Icky Blossoms rocking the stage for a head-banging set, causing Goreski to quip, “Every time I step into Don Hill’s I feel like a hipster. There’s always some weird band playing here.” Tucked away in the DJ booth were Ben Pundole and girlfriend Chelsea Leyland, the latter who waxed nostalgic about being back at the old Soho boite. “I used to come here a lot but this is my first time deejaying here, so I’m really excited,” she told Style.com. As for her fashion week detox plans? “I’m going to get a massage tomorrow and drink as many green juices as I can.” Unfortunately, Leyland only got a chance to spin two songs—by 1 a.m., cops shut the party down due to music complaints, spurring the crowd to quickly filter out the door and head to the next party. Guess when it comes to Don Hill’s, some things never change.
