Coming up Monday, it’s the Valentine’s Day Massacre, otherwise known as Community Board 3’s SLA Committee meeting. How romantic!
Here’s one application that’s bound to attract some attention from the committee. Agenda item #19 — a request from brothers Martin and Mark Whelan for a full bar at 10-12 Delancey Street, the tenement next to the Bowery Ballroom. These guys are best known for Irish pubs like Stout NYC (the “Superdome of taverns”) in Herald Square, St. Andews and Maggie’s Place.
They want to call their Lower East Side bar One Mile House (sound familiar, Bowery history buffs?). There would be 17 tables, a 20 seat bar and a backyard patio. On their application, the food is described as “comfort/gastropub” fare. The bar would be open from noon-4am daily.
CB3’s SLA Committee meeting takes place Monday at 630pm, at the JASA/Green Houses, 200 East 5th Street.
