Progress Report: One Mile House at 10 Delancey

Posted on: November 4th, 2011 at 6:41 am by

Roughly nine months ago, the Lower East Side learned of a new bar that was to open inside 10 Delancey Street.  The store, formerly occupied by AA Awning & Sign until 2009, is currently amidst transformation to One Mile House.  Ownership helming the new venture includes the familial team behind the Herald Square trifecta of Stout, Maggie’s Place, and St. Andrews – brothers Martin and Mark Whelan. Michael Winsch of the adjacent Bowery Ballroom and Mercury Lounge is also a backer on this nascent project.

Build-out has been steadily progressing since mid-summer, with workers on the job informing us of a likely end-of-month opening date.  A new website and Facebook page also confirm a fall launch.  However, seems like One Mile House will take a bit longer than that.  Plywood boards are still the order of the day, and peeking behind, there’s still much to be done.  We’ll keep you posted as developments become available.

Meanwhile, the on-premise liquor license for One Mile House is still pending with the SLA.  Once approved, the tavern will remain open until 4 am every day; a backyard patio accommodates eighteen people until the closing time of 9 pm. This according to the CB3 minutes from last February [PDF].
