Something new in the works for 25 Avenue B

After just two months at 25 Avenue B, Matty's shut down back in February. There's now a new applicant for the bar space between East Second Street and East Third Street.
According to the questionnaire (the PDF is here) on file ahead of the September CB3/SLA committee meeting, there's is a 100 percent corporate change for the business... and a name change to Avenida Cantina.
However, despite a new concept and partners, this item will not be heard in front of the committee. There isn't any other information at the moment about what to expect from the new venture.
In the past few years, 25 Avenue B was home to Idle Hands and Station B and Billy Hurricane's.
A listing for the bi-level club shows an asking price of $299,000 with a monthly rent listed as $16,882.63.
The SLA meeting is at the CB3 office, 59 E. Fourth St. between Second Avenue and the Bowery.
