Roxy space may get second incarnation

January 12, 2010 01:24PM

A group of nightlife operators pitched an idea yesterday to Community Board 4 to open a mega club in the former Roxy disco club space at 515 West 18th Street at 10th Avenue. The group of downtown nightclub owners, including the Taj Lounge, Katra and Leopard Lounge, pitched plans for a 2,100-person space to include a restaurant and catering hall on the main floor, a nightclub in the downstairs space, a separate café on 19th Street, and a shop next door selling “souvenirs, clothing, apparel and T-shirts. The group wants use of a parking lot under the High Line for vehicle drop-offs and pickups. Neighbors at the community board meeting were not receptive to the idea of another club opening in the area, with popular nightspots like 1 Oak And Avenue already in close proximity to the proposed club. “We don’t want the club scene coming down to us,” said Miguel Acevedo, president of the Fulton Houses Tenant Association.
