Bareburger’s Return, and Other Bar and Restaurant News Revealed in Liquor License Filings


Bareburger on Columbus, back when it was open.

Bareburger disappeared from 795 Columbus Avenue around 98th street earlier this year, only to be replaced briefly by a place called City Slickers Diner. But City Slickers didn’t last long, and now it looks like Bareburger is returning to the space.

Bareburger has put a new flyer in the window, and is applying for a liquor license there. (Bareburger didn’t respond to a request for comment.) A hearing about that license is on the agenda for this Wednesday at Community Board 7’s monthly Business Committee meeting at 250 West 87th Street. And that’s not the only new restaurant or bar looking for permission to serve alcohol or open a sidewalk cafe.

There’s also a bar looking to open in the former home of Spiga at 200 West 84th Street and something coming to 45 West 81st Street, the Excelsior Hotel. See the full agenda below.

        interesting link. isn’t it angering that producers balk and whine, claiming prohibitive increased costs when required to change the wording on packaging, but outside of that will bend, twist and lie about ingredients, suffer the increased cost for the sake of profit.

      Long Play Record Bar’s Facebook page says they will be “a cocktail lounge and vinyl record lover’s dream. Rather than the same old noisy neighborhood bars covered in TVs, Long Play will be an oasis; a perfect place to relax, listen to vinyl and rediscover the art of conversation.” Count me in!

    2. Jack Davis says:

      200 West 84th Street is at the corner of Amsterdam Avenue, not Columbus.

    3. Mark Moore says:

      If there’s one thing the neighborhood did not need it was that City Slickers place.
