Report: Spur Tree Might Move to Former Interstate Space on Orchard
This image has been archived or removed.
With Interstate Food & Liquor a mere footnote and the forthcoming Tenement LES concept on ice, something different might be in store for 74 Orchard Street. Though, a familiar face from just up the way. Spur Tree might be moving here.
A Boogie birdie tells us that the successful Jamaican style bar-restaurant is currently negotiating to take over the nearby space. We hear that Spur Tree has outgrown its current home of six years, and simply needs more room to operate. Relocating to 74 Orchard is apparently the proper (i.e. most convenient) fix.
Spur Tree was founded at 76 Orchard in 2007 as a revival of the storied Red Stripe bar, which Marc Solomon had first opened on Crosby Street ten years earlier. However, there was a management shakeup shortly after opening, leading to the name change that lives on today.
