Beginning today, and for ten days thereafter, Stay Classy […]

Serafina Rolls out the Red Carpet for its Rivington Street Opening

Posted November 29, 2016 at 5:10 am

It doesn’t get much tackier than this. Last night, Serafina literally rolled out the red carpet and photo backdrop for the opening of its Lower East Side location at 98 Rivington Street. Drum-and-bass music kept the crowd of insiders (not of the neighborhood) at bay. Also, note the “cocktails and pizza” neon lettering which seems […]

Paul Seres Replaces St. Jerome’s on Rivington Street with a Bar Called ‘Delilah’

Posted November 7, 2016 at 5:00 am

Hey there, Delilah.  Looks like another watering hole is rising from the ashes of the now-defunct St. Jerome’s on Rivington Street. Same as the old boss, though. The ground floor of 155 Rivington spent the last couple months boarded behind plywood. Prior building permits to renovate the bar proved that nightlife honcho Paul Seres is not […]

There it is. It’s official. Yellow teaser banners at 98 Rivington Street promise that Serafina will open on November 16. Quite a surprise, actually. Build-out of this Lower East Side location has been ongoing for months – seemingly secretly – with painted gates closed. The advertising signs didn’t arrive until a few days ago (and […]
