The bar here on between First Avenue and Second Avenue opened in May 2009.

The space doesn't appear to be empty for long. An applicant was on last night's CB3-SLA docket for a new liquor license here. The application posted on the CB3 website is short on specifics, other than the proposed hours — 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily. The applicant, a founder of an e-commerce company for financial-service firms, also owns the building.

I'd like to know how the owner of that building got permission to build an extra story on the building.

I guess that's one way to open a restaurant, buy a building. The new EV.

They were really, really good.

I went to this place exactly once. It was so loud, I couldn't hear my companion, so never again.

I'm also wondering how they got away with the building extension which blocks the sidewalk. There also used to be a tree there, which conveniently disappeared. This is the worst stretch of sidewalk on that block, especially when people stand there and smoke.

Simple: they have a permit. It's public record.
