Marshall Stack Owner Taking Over Lolita Bar on Broome

The bra is coming off the lady of 266 Broome Street. Lolita bar, the twelve-year-old artsy standby allegedly named for the former bra shop around the corner at 70 Orchard, is currently amidst transition. That’s simply a euphemism for changing ownership.

Lolita had been on and off the SLA subcommittee agenda in recent months, but now its fate is made ever clearer. Marshall Stack owner Matthew Kelly reportedly purchased the Lolita assets and is looking to secure a liquor license transfer from the previous establishment. Name change is likely but not yet confirmed. We have various inquiries awaiting response.

Anyway, judging by blueprints recently made public, it doesn’t appear much is changing with the interior. Looks like a different table layout, but still only one bathroom. Which sucks. Kelly also hopes to introduce food into the equation – American-style snacks.

Hopefully the Marshall Stack principal keeps the same bargain-priced happy hour deal.

    Actually there is a secret bathroom in the lower level, but the lower level has only ever been open one or two times that I’ve been there.

    I’m laughing because I took a friend Marshall Stack because I used to like it, but the pours were really light so we moved to Lolita and had great time….so I hope they don’t bring the cheap factor to lolita!
