Per the recommendation of Neena, good friend and the British contingent of the the Brooklyneer ownership, I checked out BarChick, a London-centric nightlife site. I couldn’t help but click on their “Where to Dump Someone” tab. (Really, shouldn’t every city have this as a public service?)
Pleased to see that the site of our Thursday night outing, Barts, made the list. A good ole speakeasy tossing expertly crafted cocktails tucked away in a residential apartment. And unlike so many of the new speakeasies in NYC, this one actually strives to be somewhat exclusive and difficult to find.

Oh, by the way: Barchick says…
BARTS – If you like dressing up
This hidden bar has the perfect attributes for a good dumping spot. Once you have had “the talk” you can say you’re going to the toilet, and then proceed to raid the dressing up box for the best outfit you can find and either mingle with other people or duck out. This place has a sort of hide out den feel to it, so it’s the perfect place to drown your sorrows away from the world outside. Also, the dumpee is bound to get drunk and maybe get lucky with someone rich.
Let’s be honest: Now I just need to find someone here to dump there.
Accessorize: with an oh-so-casual club outfit…
