Max Fish just added its first touch of flare to the new reboot location at 120 Orchard Street. Staying the course as an artsy alternative, the nightlife institution tapped Klughaus Gallery to paint the door frame with pink and blue polka dot patterning. The artist behind the effort is Gregg Woolard.

Yesterday afternoon was the first time in months that the security gate at 120 Orchard Street was raised. You’ll recall, of course, that this location was previously occupied by Gallery Bar, which ceased operations in early May. Now it’s time for Max Fish to mount a comeback after a year in exile. For the second iteration, Uli Rimkus and company will have access to a kitchen, and will therefore serve up cheap bar snacks – Chaeschuechli swiss cheese tart ($1.50), Chili ($5), and rather hilariously, hardboiled eggs ($1) are all included on the proposed menu.

Their liquor license is still pending with the State Liquor Authority.

Max Fish first opened at 178 Ludlow in 1989, but has since been converted to the Lower East Side location of Sweet Chick.
