new place on ditmars
« on: May 24, 2005, 03:17:24 PM »
i keep seeing construction going on at the old olympic deli on ditmars between 23rd and 24th streets- they appear to have a baby grand piano in the space, but nothing else that seems to show what the space is going to be used for- does anyone know?

It's called Wallys (I think?) and it's going to be a cafe/bar with desert.

And a music space.

When Nick and I stopped by they said it was going to be called Waltz and they where going to be more of a music cafe. People could get stuff like pastries and listen to jazz, tango and classic stuff. No rock or anythig modern.

Update -- it opened this weekend.  Hours roughly 11am-10pm, no internet, dessert.

They are going to have performance (music) and they've got a small selection of new and used books.  Small.  But I expect that will grow.

The desserts looked good.  The space is quite nice.

I think I heard about this. It's essentially a piano bar, right? I think that'll be a tough sell.
