Gansevoort Park Ave, Village Tart and Fraunces Tavern
Nightlife Town Hall Meeting
Local residents, nightlife operators, police and other interested groups met at PS 20 last week to discuss a variety of issues related to the nightlife industry with Denis Rosen, chairman of the New York State Liquor Authority. While everyone present got a chance to voice their opinions and ask questions, nightlife patrons, the largest group in nightlife did not have a voice in the proceedings. If local politicians plan to make this an ongoing event, we need to take our seat at the table or get left out of discussions that matter to us.

Just as the Hi Note is planning to open, we get another signal that midtown could be the next nightlife hub. The owners of the Meatpacking anchor Gansevoort Hotel are planning a sister location on the East Side, complete with rooftop pool and multiple lounges.

George Washington's neighborhood bar is closing this weekend, so if you want to plan a revolution or just organize the next Tea Party protest downtown, you’ll have to go to Stone Street…
The killer of Ingrid Rivera has pled guilty to killing the club patron inside Spotlight Live. He’ll be sentenced on March 16th for sneaking the girl back into the club, taking her up to the roof, hitting her in the head with a steel pole and cutting her throat.
A former LES dry cleaners has re-imagined itself as a bakery/ wine bar. Local residents were up in arms about it at the Nightlife City Hall Meeting last week (see above) but few combinations are sweeter than cupcakes and moscato.
