Former Señor Swanky’s Sports Sidewalk Shed
It’s been two years since the frat-friendly Señor Swanky’s shuttered its Village location at 142 Bleecker Street. In that timeframe, the space suffered from neglect of the highest order. The yellow brick became a magnet for graffiti, while the interior languished behind windows caked with gunk. But as of yesterday, there is movement anew.

All day yesterday, the woodworkers and painters were onsite building a hulking sidewalk shed in preparation of the new restaurant. This comes just days after Floridian owners John Keogh and Tim Ryan appeared before Community Board 2 for a full liquor license. Plans call for a 54-seat gastropub serving cuisine of the British Isles. However, the board rejected the application, suggesting both owners “talk to the community a bit more before resubmitting a proposal.”
