It’s a week of good news for the Living Room. Not only did the venue reach its funding goal via 444 pledges, but a new space also seems to be in the works. Out of the Lower East Side and into the East Village. Later, Ludlow.
According to the Community Board 3 agenda for next month’s SLA subcommittee meeting, the Living Room has sights firmly set on 173 East Second Street. That’s between Avenues A and B, so not too far away. Co-owners Jennifer Gilson and Steve Rosenthal are seeking a full liquor license for the new location, its third in ten years.
As for the money raised in the crowdfunding drive, the Living Room hopes to purchase new chairs and supplies for stage construction and plumbing. Meanwhile, they will remain at 154 Ludlow until the end of April, as previously reported.
We have an email out to the owner for confirmation.
