The Daily News confirms that Lenox Lounge will not keep its name but will become Notar Jazz Club. Restauranteur Richard Notar will be taking over the iconic space just south of 125th Street on Lenox Avenue and apparently will be naming it after himself but keeping everything as originally designed. Apparently the former owner had reached out to partner with Notar but did not receive any response. So basically the jazz club will serve up South Carolina fare and will remain intact in all aspects except name.
In our opinion, just calling it Lenox might have been more appealing since it is just the name of the boulevard and provides a connection to the history of the neighborhood. More details in the Daily News: LINK
