CB3's SLA docket for February includes applicant for the former Belgian Room on St. Mark's

Community Board 3 released its slate of meetings for February. (Find the calendar here.)

The SLA committee docket has a manageable number of applicants ... and not too many north of Houston. One item of interest: There is an applicant for the long-vacant bar space at 121 St. Mark's Place ... last home to the Belgian Room, which the state seized for nonpayment of taxes in April 2015.

The calendar simply shows an LLC going by Mr. White applying for a beer-wine license for the location. CB3 hasn't uploaded the questionnaires just yet. We'll pass along more info about this venture when it becomes available.

It's not clear whether Mr. White will also take the former Ton-Up Cafe space next door. Workers removed the wall between the businesses in 2015. (Probably yes.)

The February SLA committee meeting is Feb. 6 at 6:30 p.m. Location: The Thelma Burdick Community Room, 10 Stanton St. at the Bowery.

Hey guys, this is Mr. White. I just wanted to say my partners and I are really excited to be a part of this community. St. Mark's Street has been a special place for us for over twenty years now and we hope we hope to do right by it. If anyone has any questions or concerns I welcome you to reach me at or seeing you in person when Mr. White opens its doors.

Mr. White has been part of the St Marks Street community for 20 years? There's a St Marks Street in Linden, New Jersey, but not here. This reminds me of the 'Merica fiasco, with made up people posting here in support of that hot mess. And guess where that guy was from? Jersey.
