Oh, missed this item yesterday in Steve Cuozzo's column in the Post (thanks Racked!) ... 313 Bowery, that one-time home to the CBGB Gallery that now houses the Morrison Hotel gallery is looking for a new tenant ...
(Confused by this — I spotted the "for lease" signs back in August 2009. Not sure what is different about the leasing now. Maybe to whip up some interest?)
So, Cuozzo reports:
The 3300-square foot space at 313 Bowery now occupied by the Morrison Hotel music-photo gallery — named for the famous Doors album and a spiritual successor to the CBGB gallery that was adjacent to the club — has been put on the market by Elliott Azrak's The Max's Kansas City Co., which netleases the property's retail space from the Bowery Residence Committee.
"The netlease holders are looking for not just any tenant, but one who can leverage the history of the block and the unique Bowery demographic," one source said.
That could mean a restaurant/lounge — or another store similar to John Varvatos.
The secret club Extra Place by Max's Kansas City is also part of the deal.
