Eli Zabar’s ‘Night Shift’ Beer Bar Eyes Chinatown Expansion [Updated]

Another bar for Zabar…

A few months after heir-to-the-throne Oliver Zabar announced plans for an all-day cafe (i.e. bakery-restaurant) with dad Eli at 192 Mott Street, we learn that the deal is off. Replaced instead with a new proposal deeper into Chinatown.

Word came down the pike yesterday afternoon that the father-son team will impart another outpost of Eli’s Night Shift at 54 Mulberry Street. Second to the original craft beer bar, which opened on the Upper East Side in the fall of 2015. This location is situated across from Columbus Park, and could net fierce scrutiny from the Chinatown Residents Block Association currently fighting the descendants of Le Baron down the block.

The Zabar proposal made its way to Community Board 3 whose SLA subcommittee will vote on the full liquore license application next month.

Below is the menu for the UES version of Eli’s Night Shift:
