Dark Room Out, “Bodega” In at 165 Ludlow

As we first reported in early December, an entity called Bodega is taking over the sub-level space. Owned and operated by Michael Auerbach of Ludlow newcomer No Fun and James Woods (THOR fame), this space is being described as “an old-school Lower East Side bodega meets a sophisticated and sexy speakeasy.” Excuse us while we hurl.
Grub Street reports that Bodega will be another gimmicky concept that offers standard booze alongside cigarettes, potato chips, calling cards, and forties. It’ll open on May 1.
