There was a Major Brawl Outside No Fun on Ludlow Street [VIDEO]
The Saturday before last saw a surge of violence outside No Fun on Ludlow Street. This video shows the reality of many a weekend night on the Lower East Side.
It’s not getting any better around here…
In the following clip uploaded to YouTube, we see two groups of bar-goers squaring off at the doorstep of No Fun, talking smack for about a minute before the eruption of fisticuffs. As an FDNY vehicle drives by, one guy whips another with the velvet rope, while his cohorts grab the metal stanchion and wooden bar stool as weapons.
No Fun has basically been a thorn in the Lower East Side since its debut almost seven years ago. The controversial nightclub replaced Paladar at 161 Ludlow Street, and was initially billed (to CB3 and SLA) as a “full service tapas restaurant.” As bait-and-switch, it’s often considered by neighbors to be one of the worst quality-of-life offenders within the confines of Hell Square.
