Beetle House, the Tim Burton-themed bar-restaurant on Sixth Street, is expanding its footprint here between First Avenue and Second Avenue.
Reps for the place virtually appeared before the CB3-SLA committee on Monday night. According to the questionnaire on file at the CB3 website, Beetle House will move into the adjacent space at the address.
Zach Neil opened Beetlehouse in 2016 ... and later expanded in other markets (Los Angeles, New Orleans).
Beetlehouse has been closed since the PAUSE went into effect in March. However, their Instagram account promises that they "will be open by Halloween."
This expansion also officially marks the end of Cherin Sushi N Ramen's time at the address. They had been closed since March as well.

With all of the long-time, great places the EV has been losing, something like THIS not only remains, but expands? If the last four years of the Orange Fascist hadn't already proved it to me, this would certainly show me that there is no God.
This restaurant/bar is Disruptive to those of us who live on the block. The patrons who are mainly tourists line up outside every day starting early afternoon. They are loud and noisy. This goes on till late in the evening, people standing outside, getting increasingly drunk and noisier. The workers encourage the loud noise - as they themselves “in character” are shouting at the top of their voices at all hours of the day and evening. The music is loud.
This is a residential block mainly. This place doesn’t belong here. The city shouldn’t give permission. How do we residents legally protest this?
I was actually hoping this place was gone. Meanwhile, there are several nice restaurants along that same block who have been good neighbors for years and are not coming back.
Sorry if you like this place, but that stunt called 'Merica revealed the vile type of thought behind all this.
Cherin was the best. Such nice people, and great inexpensive sushi. They'll be missed.
Weird, I am surprised that corny tourist spot didn't just close
Such a corny tourist trap, a Tim Burton themed bar sounds like something you walk into to take a leak in Atlantic City
All residents who have been voicing concerns here, please submit a complaint to the East Village community board that is granting permission to this establishment to expand. https://www1.nyc.gov/html/mancb3/html/forms/service_complaint.shtml
Residents of this block could think about organizing with their neighbors to form a block association.
