The ‘Untitled at 3 Freeman’ Hotel is Getting Food and Beverage by Gadi Peleg

With Sister City gone nearly a year from its Bowery perch, a new hotel quietly opened in its place several months ago. And this one appears to evoke the thoroughfare’s single room occupancy past.

Branded as Untitled at 3 Freeman Alley, the nascent lodge is apparently built on the backbone of Airbnb. Indeed, the whole reservation system appears to go through the platform. The website also discloses that the hotel is busy renovating all of the rooms across the building.

Despite the new operator here, public records still list the property owner as 225 Bowery LLC, which is the shell entity for owner-developer David Paz.

Now, six months after its debut, Untitled seeks a full liquor license for its suite of nightlife offerings. According to application paperwork filed with Community Board 3, there will be four designated hangouts within the Bowery hotel, all serving Mediterranean style cuisine; prolific restaurateur Gadi Peleg is at the helm (Breads Bakery, Nur).

There is 2,300 square-foot ground-level restaurant-gallery with seating for 150 patrons; a 1,500 square-foot outdoor annex open until midnight daily; and the 2,260 square-foot restaurant on the eleventh floor with separate terrace accommodating 95 people and hours until 2:00am.
