Tiny Empire Location on Lafayette Street Closes Down (Again)
The new Tiny Empire outpost in SoHo is again down for the count. It’s certainly been a rocky road for the smoothie/juice bar since opening at 234 Lafayette Street last summer.
Two months after a purported “zoning mixup” over the bathroom attracted ire from the Department of Health – resulting in closure – more of the same just transpired. Another sidelining, the second within two months. And with little explanation.
According to the handwritten announcement onsite, Tiny Empire is “temporarily closed” for unspecified “emergency maintenance/construction” until further notice. Brown paper sits in the windows. This closure looks like it’s probably for keeps.
Tiny Empire opened this location, its second overall and first in Manhattan, at 234 Lafayette Street back in August.
