[Updated] Black & White looks to reopen early next week

The Black & White has been closed since the fire Tuesday afternoon on an upper floor here on 10th Street between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue.

The low-key bar, which recently recently celebrated its 17th anniversary, provided an updated via their Instagram page:

Thanks for all the well wishes. Everybody got out safely and the bar sustained little damage. We should be open sometime soon after the weekend. Check here for updates.

[UPDATED 2/14: The bar is back open tonight.]

As for the rest of No. 86... here's a look at the damage...

...the fire apparently started in the third-floor apartment...

Patch reported that emergency responders evaluated two people at the scene for injuries. There wasn't any other information about cause or the extent of the damage.

According to public records, an LLC going by Elk Mas 86 East 10th owns the building. The third-floor unit, listed at two bedrooms, was asking $5,645 a month, per Streeteasy. The space above Black & White previously housed the company behind the Governors Ball Music Festival and Wiz Kid Management.
