The new joint venture between Henry’s End and Cranberry’s located at the space formerly known as the Wine Bar at 50 Henry Street will be called Brooklyn Heights Wine Bar. The new owners will be pitching their case for a liquor license at this Wednesday’s (1/7) CB2 meeting according a public notice posted in its window this morning. The meeting will be held at the Brooklyn Hospital Center, 121 DeKalb Ave., North Pavilion, Third Floor Conference Rooms 3A and 3B at 6PM.
More to the point, the new owners have already stated that the manager of the disgraced Wine Bar at 50 Henry and its sister establishments, Dan Kaufman, will not be involved. Moreover, entity information about the LLC operating the new wine bar makes no mention of “Corner of Cranberry” kingpin Alan Young.
As for whether Young is still holding the lease to the storefront, BHB is awaiting a response from the landlord at 50 Henry Street for clarification. However co-owner Mark Lahm tells the Brooklyn Eagle, “We didn’t buy the bar from Young, but we leased the space from the building’s landlord.”
