L’Oubli Gives Way to “Subject” at 188 Suffolk

Posted on: November 14th, 2012 at 6:48 am by

The nightlife pedigree at the corner of East Houston and Suffolk Street is certainly on the upswing of late. Indeed, we broke news on Monday that controversial TriBeCa restaurateur Matt Abramcyk is planning a venture for the old Local 269. Today brings word that Millesime vets Patricia Mikes and Matthew Rush have recently transformed the two-year-old L’Oubli space at 188 Suffolk into another bar called Subject.

Director of Operations Chris Harrington (Momofuku, Saxon & Parole) sent along the following description of what the neighborhood can expect from Subject.

We are doing all of our own hand crafted sodas, pistachio cola, root beer, and tonic.

Our cocktail program is also really wonderful, with 9-12 cocktails on rotation at all times, fresh juices, homemade syrups and tinctures, etc.

The beer list is all in cans. We have really affordable options for $4, as well as a selection of local and domestic craft brews.

We will also be launching our food menu within a couple of days from now and we will serve food 7 nights a week until 3:30 a.m, and last call for alcohol is at 4, every night.
