The fact that "Hospitality" is in the entity name has me curious...could it be another branch of SoHo?Timber!
The latest person to contribute to the revitalization of Downtown is none other than Justin Timberlake.
The pop singer has a stake in a new bar that is not yet named or open at 6 Murray St., Community Board 1 discovered when a representative of the bar came before the board to ask for a liquor license. Bruno Gioffre, Jr., the project's attorney, also hinted at other high-profile partners, though he didn't name names. The application refers only to an entity called "Murray St. Hospitality Corp."
The 6 Murray St. location most recently housed a bar called A & M Roadhouse, run by Arthur Gregory, but it closed several months ago. A "Space For Rent" banner drapes the old Roadhouse sign, giving neighbors no inkling of Timberlake's impending arrival.
"It would be great for the block," said Chris Digennaro, the manager at 2 Rivers bar at 10 Murray St. "Let him have it."
Digennaro is fed up with the city's snail's pace of redevelopment, and said a big name can only help.
"More people need to support the neighborhood," he said. "We're dying down here."
EDIT: Oh yeah, I should mention it's a location in NYC
