There were reports that Harlem Public opened up in Hamilton Height's Broadway corridor this past weekend, so has the West Harlem lounge opened? We walked by last night and took the above photo and this corner of 149th Street is clearly not yet ready for business. There apparently was a soft opening party this past Sunday for friends, family and few lucky locals who happen to walk by but the establishment is waiting for some final inspections before officially opening to the public at large.
