Per the Yelp description: "Conceived in 2018 by 5 friends from the restaurant industry, we are excited to reintroduce the East Village Tavern to the neighborhood as an authentic Mexican restaurant and American sports bar."
The listed hours of operation are 11 a.m. to midnight daily; until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
The previous East Village Tavern closed in November 2016 after eight years in business. Bar management blamed a disagreement with landlord Steve Croman for the closure. (A Croman rep reportedly said that the owners were behind on rent.)
Since then, several applicants unsuccessfully tried to open new concepts in this space, including the operators of a Miami-based restaurant called the Irish Times Pub and Eatery as well as a jazz club called the Snow Leopard.

Shawn notes that this will be the first bar on Avenue C with a pool table since Duke's closed at the end of 2011.
