Be prepared for more noise this weekend. I just saw guys waiting outside Ludlow Manor with a big crate of food. (and it wasn’t PB&J!)

As a refresher, Ludlow Manor was shut down and fined by the State Liquor Authority in mid-January for not playing by the rules. Their one liquor license for the ground level bar was revoked because, for one, the club was not serving food as stipulated in their license, and second, authorized drinking on the top levels without the necessary approval. The funniest part of the ordeal was how management claimed compliance by allegedly serving “cold sandwiches” (i.e. PB & J, turkey). They initially told Community Board 3 cuisine would be of the “European tapas” variety…

A reopening this weekend wouldn’t appear completely out of the ordinary given the movement here of late. As our tipster points out, there’s the food delivery. Plus, the Ludlow Street facade was painted a brownish hue last week, and lights have been switched on recently with some rustling about the premises. Check out the garbage bags draped over the bar.

This spat of activity notwithstanding, the liquor license for Ludlow Manor is still listed as “inactive” on the SLA website. We’ll keep you posted.
