East Village Wine & Liquors closed its Stanton Street headquarters over the holidays after roughly a ten-year tenancy. Signage is deposed from the storefront and the security gates are shuttered. Worry not, though. The long-running Lower East Side liquor store – a misnomer of a business – is moving around the corner to 80-82 Clinton Street, as previously reported.
The new location – formerly the VIP Cafe & Bakery – isn’t ready just yet. But it’s certainly getting there. We noticed shelving and other furniture in place this week. Expect the new location to open in the coming days.
Meanwhile, 80-82 Clinton Street is, of course, home to one of the coolest hidden gems on the Lower East Side. The Clinton Star Theatre. Several have entered the hallowed premises, which is co-occupied by a recording studio called The Rumor Mill and an under-the-radar event spot called The Space (on the Attorney side).
