According to an UrbanDaddy report this afternoon, Jane's back now includes a new 10-seat bar called Proletariat ... "a tiny enclave of hard-to-find brews from the Death + Company guys, now tucked innocently behind Jane’s Sweet Buns."
Per UrbanDaddy, "you’re going to walk in, give a wink and a nod, and just glide on through the door to the right of the counter" to access Proletariat.
Several readers quickly noted that there was a lot of CB3 debate over this application... Someone else pointed us to CB3's final verdict:
VOTE: To deny the application for a beer wine license for DeRossi Chelsea LLC, doing business as Jane's Sweet Buns, for the premise located at 102 St. Marks Place, unless the applicant agrees before the SLA to make as conditions of its license the following signed notarized stipulation that 1) it will operate as a bakery and pastry shop, serving food during all hours of operation, 2) it will stop serving beer and wine at 12:00 A.M. Sundays through Thursdays and 2:00 A.M. Fridays and Saturdays, 3) it will play ambient background music only, consisting of recorded music. Community Board 3 is approving this beer wine application although this is a location in an area with numerous licensed premises because 1) this applicant and its employees have a significant collective experience in baking, 2) the approval of a beer wine license would give the applicant parity with adjacent licensed establishments, and 3) at less than four hundred (400) square feet in size, this location could not be detrimental to the community.
