Fat Baby is one of the establishments that lends credence the name Hell Square. A total blight, this place is. Its quality-of-life infractions, not to mention code violations and issues with the State Liquor Authority, are myriad.

Early Sunday morning, just as the Rivington Street club was closing down, the situation outside apparently turned violent. Several tipsters disclose that two people were stabbed outside Fat Baby due to a fight inside the club that spilled onto the sidewalk. The 7th Precinct corroborated the late-night stabbing. The police report further noted that the victims were “waiting for an Uber” when a pair of knife-wielding assailants reportedly “stabbed both of them.” UPDATED: NYPD confirms that the incident stemmed from an altercation inside Fat Baby. The perp was arrested today.

The condition of the victims is unknown.

Fat Baby is a thorn in the proverbial Lower East Side. The endeavor – a Rob Shamlian special – was initially approved by Community Board 3 as a bar/lounge serving “pub sytle” food, without promoted atmosphere of nightlife and dancing. A Trojan Horse. It’s always operated as a nightclub and music venue, and neighbors claim illegally.

We’ll update as more information becomes available.
