Nitecap to Reopen Tomorrow Down the Block in Bar 151 Space

The cocktail den beneath Schapiro’s – Nitecap – just announced its move down the block to the basement of 151 Rivington Street. Ownership closed the establishment last week, and plans on reopening in the new space, heretofore occupied by 151, tomorrow evening. They had been at this address for two years.
A sign atop the staircase of 120 Rivington alerts patrons of the news.
This cellar hop, so to speak, is essentially reshuffling the deck. You see, Nitecap principals Alex Day and David Kaplan acquired the assets of 151 back in March 2014, having partnered up with Cedd Moses and Eric Needleman from LA’s Honeycut. That change happened right around the time Nitecap was getting going. The latter partners were bought out, though; Day, Kaplan, and Nitecap co-owner Natasha David will recreate the same vibe in the new space (for better or worse).
