Nitecap is opening in the basement of Schapiro’s on Rivington St.
You knew this was coming. It’s pretty much a given that any upscale eatery would open a bar downstairs.
The nascent nostalgia-loving Schapiro’s restaurant at 120 Rivington Street just pimped out its basement to a pair of nightlife heavyweights. David Kaplan and Alex Day from Death & Co. recently secured the dungeon space for an endeavor called Nitecap, described as a “cocktail clubhouse” by Time Out New York. Notable mixologist Natasha David (Maison Premiere) is head bartender mixing overpriced drinks that’ll dent your wallet.
To those skeptics out there, the State Liquor Authority shows a second liquor license for the space, which actually carries its own entrance on Rivington Street.
