Chris Noth, the actor perhaps best known as Mr. Big in "Sex and the City" was also, until recently, a night club owner. Gawker has the press release
that says his Manhattan club, The Cutting Room, is closing down January 13. The press release blames the closing on a rent increase that is more than double the current rent. Noth may try to reopen the club again elsewhere at a later date.
UPDATE: The Cutting Room may have found a new home in Tribeca
and could move there soon after closing the current location.
