Beatrice Inn: Mary-Kate Olsen’s Version of ‘Under the Bleachers’

Whatever do they put in the water at Paul Sevigny’s Beatrice Inn? Booze! (We just got feeling back in our legs, ourselves.)

Basically it seems the giant multiheaded monster of New York celebrity heads to the West Village watering hole every other weekend to savor its salad days with a side of saliva.

Heath Ledger, for one, reportedly spent a recent evening at the exclusive nightspot “kissing and making out” with Kate Hudson.

Then there’s Mary-Kate Olsen, who was spotted there last Saturday night necking with her libidinous dernier cri—Nate Lowman, a 28-year-old N.Y.U. graduate.

W‘s Editors’ Blog also reports today that Mr. Lowman, a dude described as having “pallid tortured-artist good looks and a penchant for flannel shirts,” lent his artwork to a current New Museum exhibition called “Unmonumental.”

Contrarily, the Beatrice’s squinty dimness and Ms. Olsen’s often-uncanny likeness to Rose Kennedy must have lent the torrid scene a decidedly monumental air.

Mr. Lowman is a Brooklyn native, according to his bio on the Web site for Galerie Edward Mitterrand, which not long ago sold one of his silkscreens, entitled “Bullet Hole”—a piece as handsome as it is bleak.
