Ludlow Bar Unmasks Itself at 95 Delancey

Posted on: October 11th, 2011 at 6:41 am by

The Delancey.  You’re seven years old.  Now it’s time to meet your younger sibling a few blocks to the west, Ludlow Bar, at 95 Delancey (aka 93 Ludlow).  She doesn’t seem to possess any type of loud-mouthed rock n roll gene.  But by the look of things, she’s instead going for that whole nuevo-Victorian feel with high ceilings, bright chandeliers, and wrought-iron staircases.

This is our first peek behind the shed at the new 9,000 square-foot nightlife venture from the team running The Delancey.  It’s slated to be a Spanish tapas restaurant.  Contractors have been working consistently since mid-summer to prepare the space, but most of the developments were hidden.  That is, until last night, when a substantial portion of the plywood paneling was pried from the facade, giving the neighborhood its first glimpse of another probable headache.  As previously reported, the establishment will boast three levels of debauchery, including a partially-enclosed rooftop, construction of which remains in progress.

We hear unconfirmed rumbling that Ludlow Bar might host some showcases during CMJ, which places the opening sometime in the next couple weeks.  But ownership still needs to secure a full liquor license, and will again appear before Community Board 3 next Monday. They were rejected last May [PDF], with a stipulation of no live music.  It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out…

So now we have Ludlow Bar and Ludlow Fitness.  What’s the third?
