Last Night at Beacher's Madhouse: Farm Animals, Naked Girls, A Silver Man

New, 12 comments

Yesterday evening, circa 11PM, Eater attend the opening night of Beacher's Madhouse, that curious new lounge within the Roosevelt Hotel which, early on, advertised flying midgets and a midget bar. Obviously we had to check it out. Let's start with what Beacher's Madhouse is not. It is not anything normal or typical, and quite frankly, a normal, typical person could never has masterminded such a shitshow. Get past the red velvet rope outside and enter a passageway of mirrors which leads to the main room. There's a center stage and stadium seating in front, more like stadium tables and booths. To the left of the stage sits a mini bar, as in...a mini bar. Imagine two blondes in tight outfits towering over a two foot tall bar serving mini bottles of liquor (actually those behind the bar are just for display).

Every hour or so there's a "show." Last night Kelly Osbourne -- dressed as Snow White -- helped host the evening where we saw white doves and a white cat emerge out of a silk scarf, Cancun's Silver Man (painted entirely silver) rocked out to "Sex and Drugs and House," and Beacher's Babies put on a sort of strip show thing. Jeff Beacher and David Arquette popped up on stage every once in a while to greet the crowd.

Meanwhile, as this is all going down, guests dance alongside people in farm animal costumes, pink monkeys costumes, there was even a man on stilts. Midgets scurry about in neon green wigs, and with regard to that whole flying midget thing, it's true. Each time someone orders a bottle, a midget entangled in Christmas lights, is affixed to a hook in the ceiling and is pushed along ceiling tracks (so it looks like he's flying) to deliver the bottle. Anyway, Beacher's is a crazy circus freak show, but a fun one at that.
