This image has been archived or removed.
Back in July, The Leadbelly on Orchard Street dropped the lead from its name. (This happened right around the time the premises was burglarized.) The four-year-old club is now hereafter known as simply, Bar Belly. Branding was likewise etched onto the front window of the establishment.
The name change, however, is not yet reflected on the State Liquor Authority website.
The team behind the Fat Radish across the street aggressively installed The Leadbelly at 14 Orchard Street four years ago. Their endeavor came at the expense of Sweet Paradise, whose bartender, Leah Dixon, would later open Beverly’s on Essex Street.
Meanwhile, Bar Belly celebrated its fourth year in business with a cocktails shindig last night.
