It’s opening week, and mixed messaging is prevalent at the new Ludlow Coffee Supply. A quick glance at 176 Ludlow Street might give the wrong impression that the dearly departed Pink Pony is still operational. Indeed, Sweet Chick owner and manager John Seymour and Kyle Martin respectively decided to retain the restaurant’s branded window leafing.

Seymour and Martin transformed the Ludlow Street eatery into a four-table coffee shop hybrid that includes a four-chair barbershop. Debut was yesterday. It’s a strange combination, to say the least. The tiny cafe is positioned front-of-house, and utilizes the weathered Pink Pony’s old bar-top; the barbershop straddles the middle of the space; office space rounds out the last third of square-footage in the back.

Hours of operation are 8am to 8pm.

Meanwhile, we’re told that it’ll be another week until the barbershop element – Ludlow Barber Supply – is up and running. Management is still looking for barbers to fill the chairs (barber license + experience required).

“Maybe this is their ‘respect’ for the LES history, man,” one reader quips. “But I see [the use of Pink Pony] just as fake as the purple bar at Indigo.”
