Looks like The DL – that five-year-old scourge of the Lower East Side – might be on some shaky ground. And on the defensive. Its liquor license is in a state of purgatory, having (technically) expired on September 30. Pending charges against the owners have temporarily blocked the renewal efforts.

Neighbors Contend The DL Operates Illegally by Hosting Lucky Cheng’s; Backlash Against Proposed Sidewalk Cafe

Posted March 16, 2015 at 5:14 am

Lucky Cheng’s became a refugee after its brief Times Square stint fizzled. The DL came to the rescue last year and installed the cabaret – most popular for bachelorette parties – on the second floor of the club complex.
