Seems like the storefront at 189 E. Third St. between Avenue A and Avenue B has been empty for eons.
In this case, eons = six years. As some neighbors may happily remember, the Marshal seized the hookah bar-restaurant Tut here at the end of January 2016.
A hookah bar-cafe from the Tut team called Fire and Ice was in the works here later in 2016, but CB3 doused those plans.Not sure why this space hasn't attracted some sort of business (is it the doors?). It's an excellent retail block with Jane's Exchange, 3rd & B'zaar and Book Club steps away.
Anyway! The other day, EVG contributor Stacie Joy got a look inside the tomb-like former Tut's... frozen in hookah time...
