The Stand Co-Owner Wants a Pub at Ross Morgan’s 1 Ludlow Street

1 Ludlow St.
That unique Chinatown property with three addresses is again busy with renovations … and nightlife vultures.
With the Cantina LES restaurant concept no longer vying for the well-positioned 1 Ludlow Street (aka 38 Canal aka 144 Division), another applicant is throwing its proverbial hat in the ring. It appears that a co-owner of The Stand restaurant/comedy club is hoping to open a bi-level pub on premise called “Three Points.” Paolo Italia (who also has a hand in Numero 28 on 2nd Avenue) will appear before Community Board 3 on Monday, and seeks full liquor privileges on both levels (i.e. two bars). Plans call for a total of 18 tables with an occupancy of 74. There wouldn’t be much of a food complement, though; only “light pub style fare” is listed. Hours of operation call for 4am closing times seven days a week.
Cantina LES briefly flirted with the space last summer, hoping to open with a menu of Mexican Fare. But the entrepreneurs withdrew their liquor license application for this corner store at the last minute, and instead opted for 8-10 Avenue B in the East Village. Their luck didn’t change with that address, either, with Top Notch Security having opened there last month.
