Hell Square might be in store for another wine bar.

A day after we brought news of a possible wine bar replacement for Tromba on Ludlow (Amuse), it appears another such venture is in the works for 94 Rivington Street.

94 Rivington, of course, was a bodega operation until last August when the business consolidated its holdings with the SX convenience store on the corner of Essex Street. The space sat empty and dusty for almost a year; then last month, an enormous plywood sidewalk shed materialized. All for a new wine bar, code-named Rouge NYC.

Application documents delivered to Community Board 3 ahead of this month’s SLA subcommittee meeting reveal some details. Rouge is seeking a restaurant wine license for a location that wasn’t previously licensed. And it resides in a resolution area. If approved, the establishment would boast one communal table and two smaller tables, with a legal occupancy of 16. Proposed hours are Monday through Thursday, 12 pm to 1 am, and 2 am closing on the weekends; they also hope to serve breakfast each morning from 9 am to 11 am.

By the way, there are 61 liquor licenses with 500 feet of 94 Rivington. 61!
