Ludlow Manor, at the corner of Delancey and Ludlow.
The team behind Ludlow Manor, the three-story nightlife multi-plex on Delancey Street, is not letting its troubles with Community Board 3 stand in the way of a good time. Last week, Page Six revealed that Luc Carl, Lady Gaga’s ex, is teaming up with the operators of “The Delancey,” to open this massive new venue. Last month, CB3 prevailed upon the owners to withdraw their liquor license application until they could come up with a “better plan” for controlling late night crowds and noise.
As we noted in our story last week, there have already been some preview parties, including a big Halloween bash. Judging from twitter traffic over the weekend and blurry tumblr photos, Ludlow Manor unofficially opened Saturday night. One guest tweeted, “soft opening of the Ludlow Manor was amazing. definitely what a three story playground should look like.” Another blogged, “it’s such a dope space I had to share…6,000 sq ft of lounging…drinking…eating…and one of the best rooftops (I think) downtown.”
Ludlow Manor, at the corner of Delancey and Ludlow, is scheduled to open later this month.
This morning, the NY Post reported that Ludlow Manor, the new outsized bar nearing completion at the corner of Delancey and Ludlow streets, has some celebrity cachet in backer Luc Carl, former manager of LES bar St. Jerome’s, and off-again, on-again playmate of local sweetheart Lady Gaga. From the Page Six story:
The hot spot will include a tapas restaurant, a rock club run by Carl and a revolving DJ roster at the rooftop bar, which will feature a retractable roof and smoking area. “I want sexy people that care how their hair looks,” said Carl.
Friends of the metal rocker DJ, who plans to publish a book about losing weight while drinking heavily (“The Drunk Diet,” due out March 2012), got a private preview of his new 480-patron venue at a Halloween party Monday night. Judging from the Twitter chatter, it was quite the scene, with music by the Rivington Rebels.
News of Carl’s involvement was just the latest development in a busy run-up to opening day for the bar’s backers, who include Georgie Seville and the folks behind The Delancey, another rooftop bar just a few blocks east.

More shoes bound for Delancey Street.

The new tenants have applied for permits to add a third story to the building at the southwest corner of Delancey and Ludlow Streets.
The NY Post brings word in a real estate wrap-up this morning that the folks behind The Delancey bar on Delancey at Clinton have signed a lease for a 9,000 square foot, three-story bar and restaurant a few blocks west, at 95 Delancey St. Here’s the Post:
The new corner triplex space will include a rooftop bar just like the one at The Delancey, which has regular barbecues and other events.
Julia Volpe of Stone Land Capital represented the tenants, while colleague Ben Landy handled negotiations on behalf of the building owner. The asking rent for the retail space was $140 per foot, with the lease setting a record price for the south side of the street.
