East Houston Hotel listed itself again on the July SLA docket for Community Board 3. This after a number of previous withdrawals. The corner lodge at Eldridge Street, which heretofore carried a price tag of $21 million, is seeking a full on-premise license for a bar as well as rooftop partying.

Of course, lest we forget the renderings for that proposed rooftop addition that mysteriously disappeared from the ADB Associates website after our report. Said plan called for an extension of the structure to ten stories.

Anyway, we digress. Documents delivered to CB3 show that the East Houston Hotel wishes to unveil a bar inside the establishment, serving drinks alongside “continental cuisine.”  Hours of operation would be 12 pm through 12 am Sunday through Wednesday, with 2 am closing on the weekends. And then there’s the “rooftop garden” component of the application which would include six tables and twelve seats. We understand the neighbors are not happy with this application, as it brings further nightlife nuisance to the area.
