Delancey Street, between Clinton Street and Attorney streets.

One person was taken to the hospital with stab wounds last night after a fight erupted inside The Delancey bar, 168 Delancey St., and spilled onto the sidewalk.

Police tape this morning is blocking the vacant storefront just to the west of the night spot. There’s a considerable amount of blood still on the ground, as police continue to collect evidence.

According to the 7th Precinct, a suspect was arrested. The victim was stabbed in the ear, neck and head.

More details as they become available…

Triplex Bar and Restaurant Headed for 95 Delancey

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.

Gallery Bar Back in Business

Outside Gallery Bar this past weekend.

Here’s an update on the situation at Gallery Bar, the nightlife destination at 120 Orchard shuttered March 11th by the NYPD. They were back in business this past weekend, with a few additions (including two really big doormen managing very orderly crowds lined up on the sidewalk).

As we indicated last week, Judge Joan Kenney cleared the bar to re-open after its owners and city attorneys settled the civil case, which had been filed by the police department’s legal bureau. Among several conditions, Eater reported, the NYPD insisted and owner Darren Rubell agreed to hire extra security. The bar will also apparently be bringing in a sound engineer to look at better noise proofing.

A Rooftop Fundraiser to Benefit University Settlement

The University Settlement is throwing a party on the rooftop of the Delancey Wednesday night.  “Signature New York” is a fundraiser sponsored by the organization’s young professionals. The idea is, of course, to help support University Settlement’s many programs aiding under-served communities on the Lower East Side. But it’s also designed to get young people involved in one of the country’s oldest social service institutions.
