After twelve years headquartered in the Time Warner Center, the swanky Stone Rose Lounge is headed down to the Lower East Side. The alleged move was reported in Page Six this morning, in which owner Scott Gerber noted that “We decided it was time for something new … like the Lower East Side.”
We knew this was coming, though. As previously reported, the Gerber Group will open and maintain a substantial operation within the Orchard Hell Building. Or, the Hotel Indigo if you wanna be polite about it. Whether it’s actually the Stone Rose, or some permutation thereof, is still uncertain.
Last August, the Gerber Group appeared before Community Board 3 and secured approval for hotel liquor licenses. Not without compromising some elements based on feedback from the LES Dwellers. Concessions included moving the lobby to the fourteenth floor and eliminating the food and drinking component from the second floor altogether. Plans call for a lobby bar and dining area on the fourteenth floor, as well as a larger 195-seat restaurant on fifteen. Attached to fifteen are two terraces – the East with capacity of 25 and the West with a pool (closes at 5pm) and space for 140.
