Some sleuthing by MadParkNews (and a quick chat with a construction worker) tells us that a “new bar” will be going in at 1140 Broadway (between 26th and 27th Street) just northwest of Madison Square Park. It replaces the wholesaler “Touch Down”, right next to the newish Starbucks on the corner, and the build out is currently underway.
At this point we see a “Tavern Wine” liquor license pending with New York State for what we think is the space, under the trade name Vin Sur Vingt, which is the name of a highly regarded French restaurant and wine bar in the West Village (www.vinsur20nyc.com). It certainly looks like at least some of the same ownership team (Ghar Ventures). Have more info? Send it to info@MadParkNews.com.
