Sweethaus Cupcake Cafe opening an outpost on St. Mark's Place
[EVG photo from June]
The former Luca Bar space at 119 St. Mark's Place between Avenue A and First Avenue hit the market in the early summer.
And now there's a taker for the former bar-restaraunt. The owners of Sweethaus Cupcake Cafe, with locations in Charlottesville, Va., and Williamsburg (Brooklyn, not Virginia), are on the January CB3/SLA committee meeting docket for a new beer-wine license.
While the Virginia location serves house-made cupcakes and what they describe as "nostalgia" candy such as wax bottles, candy necklaces and gummy cola bottles, the Brooklyn outpost of Sweethaus offers a more extensive food menu... as seen here...
Sounds as if the St. Mark's Place location will feature a similar concept. There aren't many details available at the moment, aside from the hours: 8 a.m. to midnight. (You can read more about Sweethaus here.)
In any event, this item will not be heard before the committee meeting, which is Jan. 11.
Luca Bar closed back in late April.
