The contents of the former Epicerie Café Charbon on Orchard Street, including its twenty-foot, pewter-topped mahogany bar, go up for auction tomorrow. Charbon closed last month; in January, Community Board 3 allowed its liquor license to transfer to the team that opened such fun-sounding places as Off the Wagon Bar & Grill, Down the Hatch, and 13th Step. Expect the as-yet-unnamed replacement at 168–170 Orchard Street to feature $1 happy hour drafts, a D.J. (but no dancing) now and then, and a private room! How much more mind-blowing could the Lower East Side possibly get? [Amodeo Auctions, Earlier]
