La Caverna on Rivington Street Proposes Expansion into 3-Level Nightclub

Posted on: October 20th, 2017 at 5:04 am by

La Caverna on Rivington Street is eyeing an expansion on Rivington Street that would create a multilevel compound.

The large office space at 124 Rivington Street – operational headquarters for the Bluecore e-commerce business since April 2015 – has been up for grabs for more than a year. For much of that time, the landlord pitched the current office space as an opportunity for more nightlife. Naturally.

Enter La Caverna.

Describing itself as a “basement restaurant” (which isn’t exactly an accurate assessment), the fourteen-year-old establishment is now looking to colonize the first floor and mezzanine levels of 124 Rivington Street.

Application materials submitted to Community Board 3 for the license alteration show that La Caverne 2.0 would sport a total of 76 tables with 203 seats and 2 stand-up bars. There will be french doors on the ground level, plus four to five televisions. The proposal also includes info regarding the kitchen serving “Italian American” fare to patrons. Closing times are 1am all nights.
