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.

Brinkley’s is Looking to Relocate; Southside Probably Won’t Follow

While seeking Community Board 3 approval for a Hell Square iteration of Pizza Beach last week, the controversial Martignetti brothers let slip that big changes are in store for Brinkley’s. A game of musical chairs is afoot. Brinkley’s and its subterranean Southside spawn opened on Broome Street in the fall of 2009, and quickly netted […]

Anti-Extell Rally Planned This Morning to Oppose Gargantuan 56-Story Tower

Chinatown and the Lower East Side are basically telling Extell to shove it. Extell chief Gary Barnett sure knows how to generate controversy. His bridge-eclipsing market-rate monolith at 250 South Street has become a lightning-rod issue among locals, who claim the resultant rush of gentrification will destroy the waterfront community. It’s a two-tower development that […]

NYPD Horse Shit in Hell Square Keeps Piling Up

Shit outta luck. The past four years, residents of Hell Square (and one block below Delancey) have been categorically dumped on. Quite literally. The mounds of manure from the weekend horse patrols are relentless. It’s a near 100% guarantee that the neighborhood will wake up Saturday and Sunday mornings to a heaping pile. That’s in addition […]

It’s Essex Crossing versus drivers who insist the municipal parking lot situated on SPURA Site 1 is a necessity.

The exit was also left open to allow people […]
