Two-year-old Sweet Grapes Wine Bar just morphed into Old Man Hustle at 39 Essex Street, as we first reported last month. Under same ownership, the transformed concept is a hot dog restaurant/bar that doubles as a small-time performance venue. Rev. Jen’s Anti-Slam was the first get.

The Hustle has apparently been operating in soft-launch mode, though. Official opening is tomorrow afternoon, to be celebrated with a party beginning at 10am.

More on Old Man Hustle:

Old Man Hustle is a lower east side hot dog shack by day and art bar by night.
