While there has been a taker for the former Luca Bar, the spaces that housed its neighbors on St. Mark's Place between Avenue A and First Avenue remain empty.
Back in April, the State of New York seized sister bars the Belgian Room and Hop Devil Grill. The Ton-Up space at No. 127 has been empty since May 2014.
We looked inside the other day and noticed that someone removed the wall that separated the Ton-Up space...
... and the Belgian Room... to perhaps make for a larger bar-restaurant concept some day...
We haven't spotted any for rent signs on either the Belgian Room or Hop Devil Grill. And there aren't any work permits on file with the DOB to suggest any incoming new business.
And some equal time to the ex-Hop Devil Grill ...
