‘Camilla’ to Bring Small Plates and Cocktails to Grand Street Cellar

Posted on: July 9th, 2021 at 5:05 am by

Mixologist Albert Trummer, the man once behind Apotheke on Doyers (and responsible for setting the bar-top alight), is no longer imparting a Grand Street cocktail den. He was to have opened something called La Bas, and even scored a liquor license.

The pandemic proved a roadblock, and the establishment didn’t see the light. Now, another concept in the wings at 324 Grand Street.

On the docket for the cellar space is a new concept called Camilla. Behind this latest club-staraunt is James O’Hanlon, known more widely for Yorktown establishment, The Daisy.But there are other backers involved, including the owners of the building itself, further following a trend that took off during the pandemic. (Landlords seek to hold the license to keep commercial units “wet.”)

Meanwhile, Camilla is pitched as a “new generation of social lounge” that will bring “memorable energy” to the area. It’ll serve a “Mediterranean-inspired menu with a focus on shared plates,” as well as cocktails to match.

The owners will go before Community Board 3 on Monday for advisory approval for a full liquor license.
