As earlier reported, the full board of the State Liquor Authority will drop the proverbial gavel regarding OP-1268378 later today. That’s the proposal for the new nightlife venture at 146 Bowery by the hand of Peter Poulakakos. And the neighbors aren’t too happy with the intrusion, especially given the high nightlife saturation of that block (the corner of Broome). Indeed, there are nine licenses within five hundred feet of this storefront, which previously held Lite Elite.

Restaurateur Peter Poulakakos is bent on establishing a 4,175 square-foot restaurant-slash-lounge concept here. Some locals call it a “nightclub complex.” The 500-foot hearing was held on the matter in February; the full board assembly is today at 2pm where a final decision will be made.

The SLA address is at 317 Lenox Avenue if you’d like to make an appearance.
