Jamie Mulholland Bringing “Five Nightclub” to 225 East Houston

Club Element at 225 East Houston Street has officially changed hands. Its appearance on the SLA committee agenda was quite interesting. A corporation called “Livety, LLC” is presently listed as applicant for a full on-premise license in the historic Provident Loan Society building. So much for that Davey Drill sighting a couple months ago…

Thanks to application materials submitted to Community Board 3 ahead of Monday’s meeting, we have a much clearer picture of the replacement endeavor. Much like the longrunning predecessor, the new concept is pretty much everything you might imagine – crowds, $15 cocktails, and bottle service – brought to the Lower East Side by a nightlife player.

Jamie Mullholland, proprietor of both Goldbar and Surf Lodge, recently purchased Club Element from ESX Group, Inc. (“bulk asset sale”) for an undisclosed sum. With this valuable corner property now in hand, the place will soon be re-branded Five Nightclub and occupy three floors. Including the basement which was previously rumored to become a nightspot by chef Madison Cowan.

Five Nightclub plans to operate two bars (ground, cellar) and serve small bites. Proposed hours of operation are Wednesday through Saturday nights (10p – 4a). And there’s no kitchen, just a food prep area.

Here’s a glimpse of their drink menu and floor plan:
