Amuse Wine Bar Opening at 121 Ludlow on Friday

The hex of 121 Ludlow Street is alive and well. Tromba was one of 2013’s first quickie closures, having lasted barely seven months on the block. Amuse Wine Bar swooped in to purchase the assets, and appeared before Community Board 3 in June for the proper blessings. The business entity was treated as a new application, which CB3 ultimately voted to deny. Two months later, however, it’s days from launching.

Amuse rolled the dice directly with the State Liquor Authority instead, and came away partially victorious. They’re operating on a temporary license until (nay, if) the main event clears. Canopy has been in place for a couple weeks, but the official opening is this Friday at 3pm.

And in case you were wondering about the hype babble circulating…

Amuse Wine Bar was founded by wine lovers for wine lovers. In the heart of the LES, Amuse Wine Bar offers a laid back, relaxing atmosphere. The menu consists of a variety of small plates that compliments our large selection of wines. Amuse Wine Bar’s goal is to educate customers while keeping the wine amusing and interesting.

121 Ludlow is rather promiscuous with the nightlife industry; it hosted four failed ventures in five years.
