Eater New York is wondering if Gotham should brace itself once again for an invasion by the nightlife heavyweight that is Opium Group. After spotting Opium honcho Roman Jones taking meetings in NYC, word on the streets was that he was scouting locations in SoHo for a possible Louis Bar and Lounge. NYC nightlifers advise the Opium gang to tread lightly because, says ENY, "If you recall, the Opium Group laid a major egg at Mansion, a colossal failure of an attempt to bring the Miami-style nightclub scene to W. 27th Street. That club was re-branded as M2 and the Opium Group headed back down south with their tail between their legs." And this just in:Says Opium Group's veep of communications Vanessa Menkes, "It's just a rumor. We don't know where that came from." [EaterWire]
