Do you like Phil Collins? Do you wish you could get customized business cards in "bone"? Do you tell people that you specialize in "murders and executions" when you're actually in trade settlement? Of course you do. And oh boy do we have your weekend planned out for you:
American Psycho, set in the soulless, superficial, status-seeking world of 1980′s New York finance, name-drops dozens of restaurants and clubs that actually did exist during that era, the elite NYC hot spots where you and I would have absolutely no shot of ever getting in (admit it!).
What still remains from the world of American Psycho? Are Patrick Bateman’s old haunts still around, turning away all but those graced with a much sought after reservation? Or have the Dorsia’s of the world been replaced by Shake Shacks and Duane Reades?
Let’s have a look!
Surprisingly a lot of Bateman's haunts still exist under the same names, including Harry's, Indochine, Orso, Petaluma, 21, the Four Seasons, Grand Central Oyster Bar, Smith & Wollensky's, the River Cafe, as well as the NY Yacht, Harvard, Cornell and Yale Clubs (if you're into that whole Yale thing).
