are hoping to have a revival in the Lower East Side… the bar, which had a nearly 25-year-run at 178 Ludlow St., is looking to move into the Gallery Bar at 120 Orchard St.
Paperwork filed ahead of this month's CB3/SLA committee meeting next Monday offers up some details about Max Fish 2014.
• Proposed hours are 4 p.m. to 4 a.m.
• The paperwork lists nine tables with 69 seats ("including couches") … plus "56 other couch seats."
• They are planning on using two levels (ground floor and cellar)
• They "may host scheduled performances, possibly 1 performance per week, and it may be advertised but the premises will not be turned over to promoters."
You can check out the very detailed CB3 questionnaire (which includes the floor plans) here (PDF!)
There's also a mention of a few basic food items for sale…
Behold the Max Fish hard-boiled eggs!
Also, check out BoweryBoogie, who had some more info yesterday about the new Max Fish.
Max Fish closed last July 29 after 24 years on the LES. Higher rents caused them to move out to Williamsburg, but plans there for a bar haven't materialized.
