Editorial Review

The original Bar Nun, known for its raging reggae-influenced "jungle parties," shut its doors in January 1996. Two young entrepreneurs have revived the place recently as an equally hip bar-lounge, but it's still struggling to find a regular crowd.

That's too bad because the club offers excellent Ethiopian food (at a reasonable $7 to $9 an entree) and a full lineup of entertainment. On Mondays, it's poetry and performance art, Thursdays hip-hop bands and Fridays jazz (saxophonist Frankie Addison played most of last summer). A deejay takes over on weekends. The club closes Tuesdays.

Expect to enter on the dance floor-stage area (where a larger-than-life sunflower hangs from the ceiling), then continue up a split-level staircase to either a large upstairs bar lined with couches or a smaller bar downstairs next to the kitchen. When the soup is on, the downstairs fills quickly.
