Leftfield Seeks Additional Liquor License for UC Lounge Space
In November of last year, it was announced that Hoboken nightlife purveyor Marc Russell was planning to cross the Hudson and into the Lower East Side. His goal – to assume control of the UC Lounge at 87 Ludlow Street. That feat was quietly accomplished earlier this year without much fanfare. Leftfield is the new B&T nightclub here.
Later tonight, team Leftfield will appear before Community Board 3 to fight for a second bar on premises. In the basement. Most notable about the application, however, is the hours of operation (4 pm to 1 am) and the “never had any noise complaints” claim. Looks fine on paper, but a few sleep-deprivated readers living within earshot of the bar, specifically overlooking the enclosed courtyard, have heard quite the contrary. Loud music well into 4 am with patrons spilling into the small backyard spewing all sorts of drunken bullshit.
It’ll be interesting to see what happens here.
