The New York branch of ZZ’s Club, to open by the end of the year, will take over the space in Hudson Yards that housed the Tavern and expand it. Occupying three floors and about 25,000 square feet, it will feature a Japanese restaurant (as in the Miami location), as well as lounges, bars, party spaces and an edition of Carbone, their popular Italian restaurant — all of them open only to members, a first. Currently there are five Carbone restaurants, including the original in Greenwich Village and one in Hong Kong.
Mr. Zalaznick did not say how many members they would accept for the club, or the cost of membership, but said there was a waiting list of more than 7,000 for the Miami location, which opened a year ago in the city’s Design District.
Before it was the Tavern, the Hudson Yards space was Tavern by WS, an American bistro and steakhouse in which Wine Spectator was a partner. It reopened with a new name after a pandemic closing.
37 Hudson Yards (11th Avenue and 33rd Street).
