Zarin Fabrics Surrenders its Orchard Street Showroom to the ‘Sharks’
Here’s some unexpected news.
Zarin Fabrics, the third-generation family owned business, recently surrendered its eight-year-old showroom on Orchard Street. Likely a retail victim of the coronavirus pandemic. And there is already a replacement in the making.
(Zarin does not own the building, but still maintains a presence upstairs.)
Sharks is coming. Self described as “your new private mansion style pool room,” it’s a billiards club with locations around the city. Customers can reserve times for any of these tables and personalize the experience with their own music. The space at 69 Orchard is known as “Silver Room.”
The hour-long sessions cost north of $50 depending on the location.
Sharks Pool Club debuted last fall in Brooklyn, deconstructing the idea of the traditional billiards hall in a time of Covid. No more crowded venues with dozens of tables or dive dive bar with single table in back.
