Was in Eve on a Saturday night from midnight to 2.30, two days after the reopening. The bar was crowded, but you could still move through the bar without pushing. I liked the mix of people, ranging from (very) young to older, straight and gay mixed.
Everyone was well dressed (traditional classy to uber trendy), without the stand-offishness that was sometimes associated with the bar in its previous guise as Arc. A good dj was playing (non-vocal) tunes. There is a mix of experienced bartenders to new bartenders who are still learning, but even when something went slow the accompanying smile ('am I doing it right?' made it more than ok.
The new look was well done. The basic lay out is similar, but modernized and repainted. New features are a hearth and booths that look comfortable (and integrated into the main bar). The changed lighting was the big plus for me, a warm and comfortable feeling resulted. Overall, a very good night. This time I spent it chatting in the back in the chairs chatting with friends and acquaintances, but looking forward to also visit and just hang in the front.
This event is listed inactive, below is the original description:
Eve has been closed.
Eve (like in 'evening') is located at the old Arc venue, aiming on a trendy 18 - 40 yo audience. Attracts a mostly straight / gay friendly audience.
Nice for a cocktail or white wine early evenings.
