Seen & Heard: The Private Club Opening in Tribeca

••• Park Row still hasn’t opened. Did I miss the Broadsheet’s retraction?

••• The two items about 100 Church in yesterday’s Seen & Heard post—the seventh-floor private club and New York Vintners’s wine event space in the basement—appear to be related. (Thanks to Mruptight for the tip.) Both are on the website for Nexus, “an international hospitality real estate development and asset management company backed by financier Joe Lewis, golfing greats Tiger Woods and Ernie Els, and actor and musician Justin Timberlake.” (Also, Community Board 1 says the applicant has postponed till July.)

Nexus Club New York:

Located where TriBeca and the Financial District meet, Nexus Club New York is a private social and business club which will be, at its core, a gathering place for family and friends. With perfectly matched amenities, spaces and services to meet a wide array of member needs and wants, Nexus Club New York spans 34,000 square feet on the seventh floor of 100 Church Street, merging dining and meeting and board rooms with children’s activities and state-of-the-art fitness and wellness facilities and offerings.

The Cellar:

The Cellar at 100 Church Street will be a destination for wine enthusiasts in the City. Built specifically for those who are passionate about world-class wine, rare spirits and food, The Cellar at 100 Church Street will include a wine bar and lounge, tasting rooms, event space with display kitchen, wine storage and retail. The Cellar will be the perfect space to enjoy wine in an exclusive and sophisticated yet relaxed environment. [Rendering below.]

••• Press release: “Assemblymember Yuh-Line Niou and Senator Brad Hoylman introduced legislation (A10739/S8674) with the aim to stop the scourge of robocalls in New York.” Sounds nice, but legislation would seem unlikely to stop the companies that do this.

••• Love this painting of the J. Crew Liquor Store by Mike Williams.

••• I reported a while back how the Department of Transportation is painting the underside of the FDR Drive lavender; the first two photos show that it’s really lavender. The third photo, between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, leads one to assume the sides will be lavender, too. I wonder how that’ll all look when the grime sets in.
