Dance with burger in hand at Industry

April 2, 2010 |  2:06 pm

The concept for SBE's Industry sounded all wrong. Not because of the alleged über-exclusive guest list or the overdone high-end concept, but because it was opened as a dual venture -- a night club and burger bar. Who would want to wiggle around on the dance floor in a mini-dress immediately after pounding a pastrami burger? That might work for Padma Lakshmi, but not many women feel sexy while slopping burger sauce all over their frocks.

It turns out the concept isn't as half-baked as it seems. The burgers are good, and the idea is to keep hungry clubbers in the building while not killing the high energy of the club.

Admittedly, it's awkward stuffing your face with a spicy chili burger while the rest of the crowd is fist-pumping "Backstreet's Back," but that's the price one pays for a hangover-free Saturday morning.
