Brandy Library Vet to Bring ‘Copper & Oak’ to 157 Allen Street
This image has been archived or removed.
Until earlier this year, the southernmost store of 157 Allen Street was a neighborhood barbershop called the Nena Beauty Salon. Now the address is being considered for a conversion to full liquor. Hell Square saturation is spreading further west…
Application materials on file at Community Board 3 reveal that Flavien Desoblin, who opened the Brandy Library in Tribeca eight years ago, is behind the push for another license. The goal here, in his own words, is to create an “upscale bar offering knowledgable service on brown spirits.” Small plates will be served all hours until closing time, which is currently pegged at 1am during the week and 2am on weekends.
Capacity is thirty patrons; there will be five scattered high-top tables with ten stools, plus one 25-foot bar.
For more on Desoblin and what we might expect from Copper & Oak at 157 Allen, consult the Brandy Library website. Not sure this stretch of the Lower East Side is ready for a whiskey tasting joint, but time will tell.
