‘Wolfnights’ will Expand to Bleecker Street Next Fall

Posted on: June 5th, 2017 at 5:09 am by

Late night Lower East Side pit-stop, Wolfnights, is about to roll up to the West Village. The Hell Square-based fast food eatery will debut a Bleecker Street location next fall.

Wolfnights announced the expansion to 235 Bleecker Street on its Facebook page (with plenty of emoji).

Wolfnights first opened at 99 Rivington Street six years ago. Expansion followed in winter of last year, resulting in the annexation of the adjacent store (Felix Tailor moved two blocks away to Allen Street). It was around this time, also, that ownership began polling customers about which neighborhoods would be best for potential expansion. That question is now answered.

They also embraced (nay, exploited) the obvious location-based connection to the Beastie Boys and their Paul’s Boutique album cover. Especially when hype-man Leroy McCarthy started to pitch the Beastie Boys Square co-naming of the block back in 2014. (Danielle Mastrion completed her updated mural last week.)

It’s a wrap. So they say.
