Wu Room in Chinatown Makes Pitch For Cellar, Patio Liquor Permits

The Wu Room, a new club in the basement of the Wyndham Garden Chinatown, is starting to attract some attention. The Times’ T Magazine is featuring a slide show from a fashionable art/dance party in the space. Later this month, the operators will go before Community Board 3 with their liquor license application.

According to documents filed with CB3, the Wu Room is run by Kenny Kaufield (The Grayson, 16 1st Avenue) and Li Juan Gu, managing partner of the Lam Group. Proposed hours are 7 a.m.-midnight in the cellar space and 7 a.m.-2 a.m. on a patio that faces Hester Street. The application suggests the bar inside the hotel lobby is also part of their operation.

The Wyndham Garden Chinatown is located at 93 Bowery. The community board’s liquor licensing committee meets March 14.
