Las’ Lap Now Serving at the Former Norman’s Cay on Orchard Street
Norman’s Cay has found a permanent replacement, the seventh business at 74 Orchard Street since 2008.
Co-founders Ryan Chadwick and Callum McLaughlin sold the assets last fall to one John Belle. Community Board 3 approved the corporate change in September 2017. Now, the buyer has opened a new lounge. Here comes Las’ Lap, next in line at this address.
The bi-level drinking den opened last week under the radar, and retains much of its Caribbean flavor. Las’ Lap serves up West Indian food and the cocktails to match. The mezzanine space is apparently an exclusive loft of sorts, and, according to one blogger, had been hosting parties up there since at least January.
The logo seems to draw inspiration from those old swim tags at summer camp. But don’t expect to see the Cessna plane that previously hung from the ceiling here. It’s been retired.
Norman’s Cay opened in October 2013, and lasted sixteen months at 74 Orchard Street. Toward the end of its tenure, it became a dual-purpose nightspot that also served as revival of Spur Tree. Post-closure, Chadwick briefly utilized the space as a short-term summer outpost for the popular Goa Taco.
