We certainly don't need any more bad bar news around here. However, on July 18, TenEleven on Avenue C near 11th Street went before the CB3/SLA committee for a license renewal "with complaint history."
And according to Eater's report, CB3 refused the renewal of "after complaints that it did not abide by stipulations they would sound proof, have security and not host promoted events or live DJs."
We don't know about any of these charges... According to the State Liquor Authority, who has the final say in these matters, TenEleven's license expired on July 31.
This message is on the bar's Facebook page: "Hey everyone! Teneleven will be closed this week as we await our liquor license renewal. Stay tuned!"
In any event, TenEleven is the kind of bar we need more of around here ... featuring the works of local photographers and artists ... and hosting the occasional musician as well as group events...
