'Indie music hall and restaurant' in the works for Colonnade Row
The other day, the Times checked in with a roundup of fall bar openings.
Here's one intriguing new venue: The owners of Elvis Guesthouse on Avenue A and Baby's All Right in Williamsburg are reportedly opening "an indie music hall and restaurant" at 428 Lafayette St. (See photo above with helpful arrow.)
The preview didn't mention that this will be in Colonnade Row, the landmarked series of Greek revival buildings near Astor Place. No. 428 is next door to Indochine.
The unnamed, two-level venue will be similar to Baby's All Right, with a bar and restaurant. Said Co-owner Billy Jones: "If you have a space and the rent is so high, you have to come up with creative ways to activate it for longer periods of time." Said co-owner Zachary Mexico: "Pay your rent with brunch."
There wasn't any mention of a possible opening date.
