Rouge Wine Bar opened this past weekend on Rivington Street. For the time being, however, the new hang cannot live up to its name – the spot is dry. Meaning, their wine and beer license is still pending with the State Liquor Authority. So for now, they’re BYO.
As for food options, there are five sandwich choices and a bunch of cheese plates from which to choose.
Rouge chose the former bodega at 94 Rivington for its fancy, chandelier-ridden wine bar. The community was against the Hell Square establishment from the get-go, with CB3 having denied their initial bid back in June. Reasons for the denial included the lack of proprietor experience and the fact that the address wasn’t previously licensed was enough to merit the negative vote.
Do you think Rouge is a good addition to the neighborhood?
