Report: Omar’s on Broome Street Held Invite-Only Party in Violation of Coronavirus Lockdown
One Lower East Side newcomer apparently thinks it’s above the law.
Omar’s La Boîte – the three-month-old Broome Street club operated by nightlife maven and celebrity mingler Omar Hernandez – allegedly opened on a recent Friday night (May 1) for an exclusive, invite-only party, the New York Post reports.
In apparent violation of coronavirus lockdown orders.
The tabloid published a photo (with faces blurred), showing the alleged party.
However, general manager of Omar’s, Ivan Busheski, denied claims of any get-togethers held at the Lower East Side hot spot.
In further response to the negative media fallout, Hernandez said in a statement, “We are looking into this distressing report. I’m sheltering outside the city, certainly wasn’t there, and I had no knowledge of any social gathering onsite.”
