You can’t keep a good pop-up down

For the second consecutive summer, a “pop-up cafe” has popped up outside Local cafe, on Sullivan between Prince and Houston Sts. Looking like a small, outdoor patio, with wooden-bench seating and a large shade umbrella, it takes up two parking spaces. Although a number of local eateries applied for the pop-ups last year, Community Board 2 O.K.’d only this one. The other proposed locations generated complaints from neighbors, who felt the street-side cafes would bring noise and block traffic. Local’s pop-up cafe is open for all to use, and no food purchase is required. The structure is closed off each night.   Photo by Tequila Minsky

  1. Neatly done! I like how they practiced privacy with the place. We are actually building the same thing at home, coincidentally of the same wooden style too. It was meant to compliment the carports perth with the same wooden structure.
