Espresso bar-barber shop in the works for 137 Avenue A



A tipster told us last month that a coffee shop will open in the former Top A Nails space going under renovations now at 137 Avenue A between Ninth Street and 10th Street.

That is partially correct. There is a CB3 SLA notice now on the storefront noting applicants are opening Three Seat Espresso and Barber in this space...



The applicants are seeking a beer-wine license for the business. This item will not be heard during this month's meeting, which is Aug. 22 at 6:30 p.m. in the CB3 office, 59 E. Fourth St. between Second Avenue and the Bowery.

There isn't any other information about the cafe-barber shop combo just yet. (There is a website that appears still under construction.)

As for Top A Nails, they moved next door to No. 139 in May.

I love eating in a space which has cut hair flying about. What's next a day care center with a beer and liquor license?

What a cool idea. I once had an idea about a laundry mat with a bar/cafe or restaurant. But it would have set me back at least 250k without investors. Not worth it in this economy,

Dog grooming + espresso/wine bar.

Anon. 8:30, pursuant to your query, "What's next, a day care center with a beer and liquor license?", you need only look at the overly-numerous bro/ho bars in the EV/LES to understand that they're here already.

Hows about cheap Chinese food/nail salon? With bicycle valet of course!

"a laundry mat with a bar/cafe or restaurant"

that was '90s and revived two years ago. Then again you probably were born in the '90s. Good thing you were able to save your own hard-earned $$$$$$.

all that needs to happen is the nail shop gets a liquor license and then we can have some drunken post beuty hook up shit happening at the bus stop. Least it will add new dimension to the late night 'I hate everybody' guy. Who I've not heard for a while...
