Neighborhood mainstay Lenox Lounge has picked up a new spot only two blocks from the original famed watering hole, which shuttered back in 2012.

The new 1,200-square-foot spot, at 333 Lenox Avenue and 127th Street, is slated to open later this summer, and will be decked out in Art Deco style similar to that of the original. The bar and iconic neon sign will resurface in the new home, and the Zebra Room will be reimagined with the addition of a skylight.

Construction will kick off in April and take an estimated four-to-six months.

Owner Alan Reed is currently tangled up in a multimillion-dollar lawsuit with the landlord of the jazz club’s former spot for allegedly removing fixtures from the bar after he got the boot.

The bar’s ex-home, meanwhile, will house Richard Notar’s Notar Jazz Club. The newly-opened eatery and jazz spot Minton’s, at 206 West 118th Street, is also adding to the number of jazz spots in the neighborhood. [Gothamist]Julie Strickland
