Looking at the Ludlow Bar Rooftop at 95 Delancey

Posted on: October 25th, 2011 at 6:41 am by

Building materials for the skydeck arrived two weeks ago on a flatbed delivery outside 95 Delancey Street (aka 93 Ludlow).  It is here that contractors are currently working feverishly to complete the forthcoming triplex hangout, Ludlow Bar. We’ve already noted that the ground level is pretty much ready to go, its nuevo-Victorian interior having since been shrouded in brown paper.  The sign was removed after our post, however…

But the most visible changes are high above the street, where an additional level is underway for the stout two-story structure.  The glass fittings for the roof were installed within the last couple days, adding another dimension of unneeded nightlife to this corner of the Lower East Side.  But team Ludlow Bar is having a tough time securing additional on-premise liquor licenses for intended bars on the second floor and rooftop. Having already secured approval for a Spanish Tapas-style eatery on the main floor, Community Board 3 is reluctant to approve more.  That much was made clear at last week’s SLA meeting.

The one-two-three punch of Hotel Chantelle, UC Lounge, and now Ludlow Bar could likely become a recipe for overwhelming late-night noise.

Meanwhile, it’s worth noting that Ludlow Bar was the name of the watering hole that preceded the Dark Room further up the block at 165 Ludlow Street. Its website remains immortalized on the nets.
