‘Brigitte’ will Reopen on Canal Street After Labor Day
Brigitte closed a couple weeks ago after less than a year in business on Canal Street. However, it’ll return after Labor Day.
The French nightspot is down for a brief renovation tune-up. Relaunch date is set for September 3. The closure follows on the heels of the passing of one of its partners, Scott Alling, back in May.
Meanwhile, the Brigitte website promises that “something great is happening” at 37 Canal Street. To embattled neighbors, though, that verbiage stokes fears of a nightclub. Especially since the business obtained approval for an alteration to its liquor license to serve in the basement.
However, partner Anthony Coppers says that there are no intentions to do so.
“We are definitely not opening a nightclub and for sure we will be reopening with plenty of perks for the neighbors and the same great pricing,” partner Anthony Coppers said in a statement.
Managing Director Chris Lauber chimed in to say that the new changes will help “elevate [Brigitte] further and bring something iconic to the establishment that we could not before. In a manner of speaking, we are stepping up the game across the board which warrants us to close and make adjustments properly.”
Brigitte debuted at the northeast corner of Canal and Ludlow Streets in September 2017, forged from the ashes of Skal before it.
