The new East Village bar, Angels & Kings, opened last night and one of the joint’s three co-owners, Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, spoke to Page Six about his excitement that he owns a place where “all our loser friends can hang out.” Wentz expressed disdain for the exclusivity of clubs and said that he hoped that Angels & Kings would have a more laid-back atmosphere, sans the velvet rope.
“It’s different when you want to bring your friends to a place . . . and maybe we’re just not cool enough to get in. We really just want someplace where we can hang out and be ourselves.”
Yellow Fever clothing designer Jamison Ernest, is also part owner of the watering hole and stated that his vision for it was “a place that anyone can go and have sex in the bathroom and not get in trouble.” That’s funny. The more they describe this place, the more it sounds like my apartment.
