Good Time Design (The Blind Burro, Cat Eye Club, Lucky's Lunch Counter) is continuing their takeover of the East Village; word's just been released that the restaurant and entertainment group is taking over El Vitral's ballpark-adjacent space and will open a new venue called Southpaw Social Club.
The Reader's Ed Bedford first reported on El Vitral's closing, which management said would be temporary; a sign on the restaurant door indicated they were applying for a permit to allow for live entertainment and a sidewalk patio. So, will Southpaw Social Club have both? A rep says that Good Time Design just took hold of the space last week and that details are being discussed and confirmed.
