Kabin Bar & Lounge closed in March 2015 here at 92 Second Ave. between Fifth Street and Sixth Street after 10 years in business.
We recall a few people looking to open a new venture (bar) in the space. However, nothing ever materialized.
Last summer, the Sabet Group bought 92-94 Second Ave. from EMMES Property Group for $19 million. (The Sabet Group has made headlines for alleged tenant harassment in the past.)
A for rent sign recently appeared on the former Kabin. (A different broker this time.)
Some details via Winick:
Ground Floor: 2,200 SF
Basement: 1,150 SF
FRONTAGE: 18′ on 2nd Avenue
-Prime East Village Restaurant/Retail Opportunity
-Landlord to deliver premises with new glass storefront and vented for cooking use
-New direct long term lease, no key money
-Outdoor seating cafe possible
-All uses considered
Here's a rendering of what that new storefront might look like ...
Keeping that Kabin signage then?
