Former Señor Swanky’s Sports Sidewalk Shed

Posted on: July 16th, 2010 at 6:18 am by

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.”
