Update: Clothing Store or Trojan Horse?
Last week the Liquor Licensing Committee of Community Board 2 heard the application by a British music producer for a beer/wine license for a “clothing” store under construction at 66 Greene Street, complete with music, a restaurant and bar, open until 2:00 a.m. Clearly, it is to be a club, despite the applicant’s denials that it is going to be a clothing store.
Dozens of residents from throughout SoHo spoke live or emailed in opposition to the application.
Faced with such resistance, the applicant’s lawyer unexpectedly requested the hearing be postponed until January to give the applicant, Alexander Grant, aka, Alex da Kid, an opportunity to discuss his operation with his neighbors.
