Happy Ending Club Scores Some Unwanted Publicity
The new version of Happy Ending lands on Page Six. The new club operating out of the original space at 302 Broome St., has been a celebrity hangout since debuting late last year. The Post reports that one of the owners, Teddy Perweiler, was barred from the nightlife hot spot after his ex-girlfriend called the cops, accusing the 25-year-old bar operator of assault.
A law enforcement source told the tabloid that Perweiler was charged with harassment and criminal mischief. The police report also listed a third charge: misdemeanor assault. A judge issued a temporary order of protection. Perweiler has denied all of the allegations. Page Six says of Happy Ending:
…what was supposed to be a tiny restaurant with jazz, inspired by Café Carlyle, had turned into something else under Perweiler and co-owner Oliver Stumm, according to multiple sources, with one calling it “a drug den.” A source said that when Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen had a private celebration for their line The Row, Perweiler’s partying antics had the Olsens so uncomfortable that “they left their own party.”
A spokesperson for the club said:
We have a ZERO tolerance policy in terms of drug use as well as trained security guards observing any suspicious activity and monitor[ing] the customers closely… All allegations are untrue . . . It’s scurrilous gossip and hearsay propagated by disgruntled former employees who were let go for unprofessional behavior.
The real Happy Ending closed in 2013.
