Ludlow Manor Fined, Liquor License Revoked

Posted on: January 23rd, 2012 at 6:18 am by

Wondering what the deal is at the doomed-from-the-start monstrosity that is Ludlow Manor?  Well, it seems the State Liquor Authority confiscated the sole liquor license the establishment managed to obtain for the ground level. A trainwreck right out of the gate, this doesn’t bode well for the 95 Delancey newcomer, especially after seemingly every publication has panned the project.

In an end-of-day item on Eater Friday afternoon, Scott Solish points us to the telling Blackbook article that explains the situation.  The SLA revoked liquor privileges because, for one, the club was not serving food as stipulated in their license, and second, were utilizing the top levels without the official permission. Pretty much everything was conveniently blamed on Con Edison for not turning on the gas, with management claiming they were complying by serving “cold sandwiches” (i.e. PB & J, turkey).

Ludlow Manor was fined $10,000 for the infraction, with another hearing planned once a fully-operational kitchen is established.

It’s also worth noting that the club has been hard at work installing a new slatted wood marquee to the storefront. The job is not yet complete.
