Signage alert: Sugar Mouse on 3rd Avenue

Signage for Sugar Mouse is now above the entrance at 47 Third Ave. ... at the NE corner of Third Avenue and 10th Street. 

This game-hall concept has been in the works for the past 18-plus months ... reps for ownership appeared before the CB3-SLA committee meeting in September 2022. 

The bar, offering pizza and snacks, will feature various table games (foosball, billiards, shuffleboard, etc.) Ownership also operates Sour Mouse on Delancey, billed as "the hottest underground social club in the LES." 

As we understand, Sugar Mouse is taking part of the retail space, which was made available when TD Bank downsized in early 2022. A previous listing for the corner storefront noted, "Join Game House/Entertainment Venue and Bar Sugar Mouse." 

No word on a Sugar Mouse opening date.

At the September 2022 CB3 meeting, several residents who live nearby spoke out with concerns about the business,  particularly the proposed late-night closing times. Block association reps wrote a letter and submitted a petition with more than 100 signatures from nearby residents in opposition to the application, per the minutes from the meeting. (At the same time, 61 people residing within two blocks of the location, including 28 residents who live above the premises at 101 E. 10th St., signed a petition in favor of the application.)

CB3 OK'd the application with several stipulations, including a 1 a.m. closing time and entrance on Third Avenue instead of 10th Street.

Sour Mouse doesn't seem to have had any big problems associated with it, at least.

Huge win for our community to get Sugar Mouse. Pokefest, art shows / league, comedy shows this isn't just a run of the mill bar.
