Louis Bar & Lounge, the French-inspired, rebellion-themed nightspot located at the Perry Hotel (the former Gansevoort South Beach), will close its doors following its final night of music and mayhem on Tuesday, May 22. The new hotel wanted space for its own lobby bar, among other options, so they decided to buy out the remainder of Louis lease in order to remodel the space and incorporate it into the existing hotel. Louis is owned by the Opium Group, which also owns Mansion, Set, Cameo and Mokai on South Beach. We also heard that tonight will be an open bar at Louis (guess they have to get rid of a lot of spirits inventory), so if you can find a way past the velvet ropes, give a final toast to Louis. (Wonder where that bust of Opium Group's Roman Jones will go now?)
