☞ READ: New Lenox Lounge Space Delayed

A recent article in DNAinfo confirms that the new version of the former Lenox Lounge will not be ready to open until January 2014 at the earliest.  Past reports mentioned that the iconic space at 124th and Lenox Avenue could possibly debut again by Holiday 2013 but this does not seem to be the case.  A landlord dispute between the former tenant has ended up in a disfigurement of the iconic jazz joint and a multi-million lawsuit is still being worked out because of this issue.

Notable restauranteur Richard Notar planned to reinvent the space as a viable new business with serious old school aesthetics and an accessible menu but the vandalism of the lounge has stalled that vision somewhat.  From what we can gather from the article, Mr. Notar still has hopes having the Lenox Lounge name returned to its original location but only time will tell if that wish will ever happen: LINK

  1. At the very least, I would very much like to see the red facade and signage reinstated, such an important part of the face of Harlem and such a highly trafficked central location.
