American bar and bistro District Tap House signed a lease for its second location at 252 West 37th Street, between Seventh and Eighth Avenues in Midtown Manhattan.
The restaurant, which offers 50 beers on tap, as well as full lunch and dinner menus, will occupy 9,800 s/f comprised of two former fabric stores that had been combined to create one wide store with more than 30 feet of frontage.
Set to open by October 1, the restaurant will occupy space on the ground floor, mezzanine and basement.
Winick Realty Group’s Richard Smith represented District Tap House, which currently operates one block away at 246 West 38th Street.
According to Smith, the area is changing so much that there is enough demand to support two different locations. “There have been a slew of hotels going up in the area, as well as residential towers and new offices so that rather than being a garment center, today the neighborhood is populated with architects, lawyers and other professionals who need places to go and entertain after work,” said Smith. “There is a big need for bistros of this type.”
