On the CB3-SLA docket this month: Applicants for the former Cock space on 2nd Avenue

There are a few items of interest to note on CB3's SLA committee docket this month.

Among them: There are applicants seeking a new liquor license for 29 Second Ave. between First Street and Second Street. This is the former home of The Cock until the crew moved to the Lit Lounge space back in December.

There are not a lot of details on the questionnaire (PDF!) on file at the CB3 website.

The document shows proposed hours for the unnamed establishment as 3 p.m. to 4 a.m. Monday-Friday, and noon to 4 a.m. on the weekend. Occupancy includes 18 tables that will seat 40 people... there's a menu that will feature specialty sandwiches.

While the applicants have not been licensed previously to sell liquor, the applicants have restaurant experience (Cafe Select in Soho, Toro in Chelsea, among them). One of the applicants is Maxx Starr, a co-owner of Fun City Tattoo, which opened at 94 St. Mark's Place back in 1989.

The October SLA committee meeting is Oct. 13 at 6:30 p.m. Location: The Thelma Burdick Community Room, 10 Stanton St. at the Bowery.

Wow - just when we finally have peace on this block after three loud busy bars now we get 3 neophytes who have never run a bar before wanting to be open with 200 people every nite until 4am.
Lets see where the public benefit is of 200 people eating "regional specialty sandwiches"
thanks jared kushner for improving the neighborhood !!

Give them a liquor license. That area is more bar/club oriented than residential anyway.

No more liquor licenses. Try to get an all ages live music venue with cafe serving food and non-alcoholic beverages in there.

Toro is a good restaurant! At least whatever moves in might be a non-tourist-trap and/or have some staying power.

Not residential?
Except every buildong on both sides of the block are 6 story residential except for Abthology Film Archives. Maybe you were looking at the faulty deceiving questionnaire filled out by the "applicants"
