Sweet Paradise Expats Opening Art Bar at 21 Essex
Posted on: June 7th, 2012 by Elie
Back in mid-March, we broke news that Sweet Paradise had folded after Fat Radish swiftly purchased the business. Bar staff was reportedly pissed at the closure, and sources indicated at the time that they were planning a like-minded Lower East Side hangout of their own. A place with a similar laid-back vibe. We now have confirmation of the new expat-endeavor – 21 Essex Street.
Onetime “lead barista/cafe manager” at the Fat Radish is also involved in the project, which calls for a new cafe-slash-bar in the former Sneaktip space. Public documents submitted to the SLA committee of Community Board 3 reveal plans for a new creative concept that features art exhibitions alongside “build-your-own biscuits, fresh sandwiches, and salads.” Interior layout will allegedly include five tables with fifteen seats, as well as a 25-foot bar with a dozen stools.
The as-yet-unnamed establishment is seeking a full liquor license from CB3 in two weeks.
