Flavien Desoblin, who is a co-owner at Brandy Library in Tribeca, plans to open an “upscale bar offering knowledgeable service on brown spirits” in the former barbershop at 157 Allen Street, notes Bowery Boogie. Paperwork on file with CB3 Manhattan indicates the cozy-seeming space will consist of a bar and five tables, while a menu of “upscale” small plates and finger food will pair with all things distilled and barrel-aged here. Desoblin will present plans to the Board’s SLA & DCA Licensing Committee on August 19. [Bowery Boogie, CB3 Manhattan]
