The northeast corner of Allen and Stanton Streets is again alight. Epstein’s is back in action.

World Cup fever is a fleeting illness – contracted in mid-June, lasting a month – and nearly impossible to satiate. But once you catch it, you don’t really want to shake it, anyway. Yes, it’s still hard to swallow that oh-so-bitter pill of the USMNT not qualifying for this year’s tournament, but take heart – […]

Hard to believe that this Lower East Side storefront has been dormant – with the exception of Vice’s weed stunt last year – since the end of 2014.

Ma Non Troppo Vacates 101 Stanton Street Shortly After $12.9M Building Sale

Looks like Ma Non Troppo was snared in the same trappings as its commercial address-mate, and is now gone from Hell Square. Tombstone leasing signage has been affixed above the entrance to the boutique at 101 Stanton Street since December. You’ll recall that a small consortium of real estate firms – Penn South Capital, Conway […]

Posted January 22, 2018 at 5:00 am

Epstein’s Bar fought for its survival; now its revival is here. The nightspot reopened to the public on Friday night. More than two years after aborting operations at the northeast corner of Stanton and Allen Streets – for neighbors, a welcome relief – the longtime watering hole is finally back on track. The interim period was apparently […]
