Application materials submitted to Community Board 3 indicate that SB principal Alex Espinal is behind this “NYC Billiards Club” entity. Official trade name is not known just yet. He will appear next Monday night to obtain approval for an on-premise liquor license.
Preliminary plans call for one ten-foot bar and no food counter; the commercial space allows for total occupancy of 74 patrons. Hours of operation are 11am – 1am Monday through Thursday, and 4am closing time on the weekend.
Twelve-year-old Soho Billiards foundered and was ultimately evicted from 298 Mulberry Street last November. That gargantuan cornershop was then cleared out and prepped for the inevitable replacement. It’s currently on the market via CBRE, bundled together as a package deal with the current dry cleaner/tailor and Subway restaurant.
