Seafood Lounge Harbor Drive Coming to Hudson Square This Fall

Steve Lewis brings first word on Harbor Drive, a new venue from promoters Bill Spector and Bugsy. The lowdown: The 3,700-square-foot space, in the former Novo space, at 290 Hudson Street, near Spring, will hold 300 people and have a nautical theme — “When you walk in the space, you’ll feel like you’re on a yacht” — thanks to cutout windows, wooden paneling, and blue and white tiles. It will operate as a Spanish seafood restaurant, as well as a “fun lounge, not a club.” Between this and Socarrat, do we see a paella trend?
