Delilah is Donezo: Rivington Street Club is Getting Auctioned off Today

Posted on: January 25th, 2018 at 9:39 am by

This morning, some news that neighbors might relish. It would appear that the closure of Delilah on Rivington Street is permanent. An auction of its furnishings is set for later this afternoon.

Thus caps a tumultuous few weeks for the controversial, year-old nightclub. The downward spiral started with the slashing of three patrons outside Delilah on December 30. One of the victims required 250 stitches after being slashed across the throat. Then, the next day, on New Year’s Eve, a bouncer allegedly assaulted a bar-goer, but told cops that it was done in self-defense. Police later found that the bouncer hadn’t completed an annual security training since 2006. New Year’s Day proved equally controversial when cops busted the bar for illegally hosting an open bar and for permitting an occupancy above the maximum.

The violent, booze-filled weekend helped trigger the multiagency sting on January 3, which resulted in dozens of violations and the eventual suspension of Delilah’s liquor license by the State Liquor Authority. Paperwork for said suspension remained affixed to the front door for the interim.

Nothing quite says finality like an auction. Apparently, co-owner Paul Seres and company are not forging ahead with a fight.

Here is what’s available at 155 Rivington:

Like new Scotsman Prodigy Plus 600 lb. ice machine, 2 Moffat Turbofan electric convection ovens, Garland electric 6 burner range with oven, 10×12 walk in cooler, 4 ft. refrigerated lowboy, countertop electric deep fryer, 6 ft. refrigerated lowboy with double overshelf, Amana commercial microwave, (2) 6 ft. refrigerated backbars, metro racks, ss shelves, liquor cages, stainless steel work tables, chest freezers, sheet pan racks, 4 portable A/C units, bar sinks, ice bins, speed rails, 2 Mitsubishi ductless heating and A/C units, bar stools, speakers, wood benches, wood top round and square tables, security camera system, bar and backbar, pop art paintings, designer lighting fixtures, chandeliers, designer sinks, designer mirrors, pots, pans, utensils, ss inserts, sheet pans, glass racks, bar supplies, and much more.
