It’s not just nights; Hell Square is also dangerous dayside.

Brunch turned violent on Ludlow Street Saturday afternoon during a bloody altercation inside Libation that left one man with a gash below the ear, police said.

According to neighbors, and corroborated by the 7th Precinct, a fight began inside Libation at around 4pm, and eventually spilled onto the sidewalk. The victim apparently spit at/on a girl, upsetting the guy she was with, who then threw a punch. Both were ejected. On the way out, someone else clocked the spitter over the head with an unknown object (probably a bottle). The victim, who was intoxicated, suffered a deep gash below the ear and was removed to Bellevue where he received six stitches.

Meanwhile, another source noted that “the club continued operating, just like nothing happened.”

Cops are still looking for perp, and are reviewing surveillance from Libation and El Luchador across the street.
