A new jazz club on Stanton Street won the support of CB3 last night, in its quest for a liquor license. Representatives of the “Moldy Fig” appeared before the SLA Committee earlier this month. The community board tentatively agreed to support the application (for a wine license), pending clarification as to whether the building was zoned for commercial use. Having determined there were no zoning problems, the full board gave its approval.
The club will be open from noon to 2am (Monday-Wednesday) and noon-4am (Thursday-Sunday). Given the fact that there will be live music, the club agreed to sign “stipulations” that it would hire “security personnel as needed,” install soundproofing and serve food “during all hours of operation.” Bowery Boogie checked out the location over the weekend.
