Application materials on file with Community Board 3 detail an establishment with full liquor license, 19 tables and 78 seats. Proposed hours of operation are 11:00am to 4:00am daily.

Karpati, who is one-third of the production team behind Sleep No More” (Emursive), owns the building at 191 Chrystie and lives there with his family.
