Bowery Wine Company

There’s a new wine bar coming to the East Village of New York City and it’s called “Bowery Wine Company” – or at least that’s what it says in the window. (see photo)

According to the poster, the Bowery Wine Company is trying to get its liquor license at 11 East First St., a.k.a. Avalon Bowery Place.

A quick search reveals that in March of 2007, the City has responded to the request with the following:

Bowery Wine, 11 E 1st St (op)

VOTE: To deny the application for a full on-premise liquor license for Bowery Wine, 11 East 1st Street, unless the applicant agrees before the SLA to incorporate as conditions of its license the following signed and notarized stipulation that it will

1) close no later than 1:00 A.M. weekdays and 2:00 A.M. weekends,
2) seat no more than twenty-four (24) patrons in the side yard at any given time,
3) close the side yard at 10:00 P.M. weeknights and 11:00 P.M. weekends,
4) install an awning that will cover the side yard during operating hours,
5) install security cameras throughout the establishment,
6) maintain a host at the entrance to check identifications (editor’s note to self: Bouncer job opening up), and
7) only allow access to the outdoor seating area through the interior of the establishment.

Outdoor seating! Woohoo!

I’m sure the Upper East Side crowd will enjoy. Anyone have any more information? Is this one getting approved?

    “To deny unless” is not a denial. It is the language the SLA has suggested that community boards use to ensure that stipulatons are written into the method of operation. Generally, the applicant has agreed to the stipulations and this is actually seen as an approval.

    Correct!, #1

    Let’s hope some liquor applicants are reading this.
