Residents of the east-facing condos in the 2520 Robinhood at Kirby tower jealous of all the fun their neighbors in the west-facing units have been having with late night partiers at Hans’ Bier Haus next door now have their very own partly open-air next-door bar to mess with: Hudson Lounge opened earlier this week, at 2506 Robinhood. And hey: on this side of the tower, there’s no pesky parking garage to get in the way of any nightclub-condo interaction.
Brothers Adam, Alexander, and Andre Klieber carved the new straight-Mod space out of the former office HQ of Adam and Alexander’s other business, Southampton Homes — after business there slowed down. New swiveling steel doors on the front and back of the 1950 building open to a patio and separate bar pavilion in back.
A publicist for the new bar and event venue claims the owners have a “good relationship” with the high-rise dwellers next door — that’s likely easier when there’s no court order in place prohibiting any contact. Unlike Hans’ Bier Haus, Hudson Lounge won’t feature live music — and probably won’t attract too many late-night rugby-team singalongs either. The brand-new Village hangout will serve small plates of food for $12 each.
