Finally a sign of life in the empty retail space on Adam Clayton and 124th st announcing an establishment called New Harlem Restaurant Lounge.
This block, which now has nondescript housing, was once the retail domain of Harlem-reared sports superstar Sugar Ray Robinson who owned a string of businesses on this block, including the popular nightclub Sugar Ray’s, the Golden Gloves Barbershop, Sugar Ray’s Quality Cleaners and Edna May’s (the fighter’s wife) Lingerie Shop. Last year this stretch of Adam Clayton Powell was renamed Sugar Ray Robinson Way in tribute to the champ.
We look forward to seeing the development of this new restaurant on a once iconic block.
We were walking along St. Nicholas Avenue the other day and saw these signs that said ” A Sea in Harlem, Fish and Chips, Coming Soon,” posted on the southwest corner building located of West 113th Street and St. Nicholas. There were no other details posted on the windows. Does anyone know what’s up with this particular area? If so, do tell!
I was running errands today (April 17th) and look what I saw!!! I think this sign says it all! Let’s hope they really mean it regarding the June opening date! That would be a perfect time to open the place since temperatures should be just right! Stay tuned Harlemites!

While Bad Horse Pizza opens this evening (April 1), looks like Harlem Tavern is slowly moving forward with building the place. This morning there was a large truck spotted at 301 West 116th Street delivering what I assume is hardwood floors. Plus renderings posted on Harlem Tavern’s website show hardwood floors around the indoor bar and dining section!
Given it is April 1st, it’s no joke that Harlem Tavern wants to experience soon what Bad Horse Pizza will experience today, opening day!
