Location: Manhattan Borough President’s Office, 1 Centre Street, 19th Floor – South side

Seaport/Civic Center area
1) 96 Lafayette Street, application for liquor license for Muses NYC Inc. – Resolution

There’s nothing online; this is the old Santos Party House space, so it could be a nightclub (especially now that the cabaret laws are kaput).

2) 181 Front Street, application for liquor license for CW SSS LLC d/b/a By Chloe South Street Seaport – Resolution
3) 5 Beekman, change in method of operation for 5 Beekman Hotel Owner LLC, 5 Beekman Master Tenant LLC, Thompson Hotels LLC and Craft Beekman LLC d/b/a The Beekman; Temple Court – Resolution

Usually “change in method of operation” means something fairly technical.

Financial District area
1) 151 Maiden Lane, application for hotel liquor license for CP Maiden Lane LLC d/b/a AC Hotel New York City Downtown – Resolution

AC Hotel is yet another Marriott brand: “When designing AC Hotels, we focused on the essentials of a beautiful stay and have created an experience unlike any other. Our breakfast found European inspiration. We replaced room service with the flexibility of a quick snack or evening tapas plates. Our bartenders are true urban spirits who will share the unique buzz of the city and all it has to offer. It’s an experience that has been designed to give you the essentials.” Terrible writing.

2) 75 Broad Street, application for liquor license for DW Broad Street LLC – Resolution
3) 9-11 Maiden Lane, application for wine, beer & cider license for AB Hospitality d/b/a La Parisienne – Resolution

3) 396 Broadway, application for liquor license for Walker Hotel Tribeca – Resolution

As described here.

4) 205 Hudson Street, application for liquor license for AFNYCLLC – Resolution

That’s the old American Flatbread space (and AFNYC LLC was the corporate entity for the restaurant). Back in the summer, there was an application to open a food hall/meeting space that was abandoned in the face of community opposition. Could it be coming back? Or is this something new?

5) 285 West Broadway, review of complaints and police activity for Haus – Resolution
6) The following notices have been received for renewal, upgrade, corporate change, minor alteration or transfer of wine and beer or liquor licenses, renewal of sidewalk cafe permits and recurring street closure permits:
