I’m currently involved with the development and opening of Moldy Fig and am extremely pleased to declare that your reader was correct!

Though it’s true the site is relatively quiet as we get all our licenses, permits, and other i-dotting/t-crossing in order, there will indeed be a jazz club at 178 Stanton St. with a beer & wine bar, a small plate menu, pool, ping pong, chess, shuffleboard, Scrabble, and some of the best jazz in New York City! We anticipate opening in the late spring.

Anyone in the neighborhood who’d like to learn more about Moldy Fig is welcome to swing by 178 Stanton, as there is often someone there while we prepare to open. We hosted a neighborhood meet & greet earlier in the month to give the community an opportunity to get to know us, and we made some fabulous new friends with our neighbors. We look forward to doing the same with everyone in the LES!

Speaking of dotting i’s and crossing t’s, Community Board 3 approved the wine license earlier this week.
