On Stellar Rays Annexes Former Restaurant Supply Shop at 213 Bowery

Regent Restaurant Supply relocated from its longtime Bowery headquarters just before the new year. In business since the mid-1990s, the ground-level warehouse operated at 213 for more than a dozen years. Well, no sooner did they depart than drilling began inside the store.
With good reason. The eight-year-old gallery occupying its rear (i.e. 1 Rivington) is expanding. That’s right. Three years after moving from its OG headquarters on Orchard Street, On Stellar Rays has just annexed 4,500 square-feet of space at 213 Bowery (ground + basement). The new showroom – designed by Buro Koray Duman – is the flagship, and should open by April with a solo exhibition of Los Angeles-based artist John Houck. The current space will eventually be used for “public programs.”
Contractors have been busy the last few weeks, having installed a new floor on premise, yet without any noticeable permits in the Department of Buildings database.
Meanwhile, Regent Restaurant Supply is now located in Queens, 69-04 Woodside Avenue.
