Meanwhile in New York: Pete Davidson Opens Bar With Secret Entrance, 1 Guess Who’s on the Blacklist

Pete Davidson may be under constant attack by his girlfriend Kim Kardashian’s ex, Kanye West, but that hasn’t stopped the SNL star from expanding his brand with a brand-new bar in New York City.

Along with fellow celebs like Nicholas Braun, Justin Theroux and Jason Sudeikis, The King of Staten Island star has become an investor in a 19th century townhouse-turned-bar that features a secret entrance via Rockefeller Center.

It’s called Pebble Bar, but was formerly known as Irish saloon Hurley’s.

“Hurley’s was long known for famed regulars like Johnny Carson, who had a personal back entrance, and novelist Jack Kerouac, whose writing on Hurley’s inspired the Pebble Bar name, David Letterman, who regularly filmed on-air on the third floor, and decades of ‘Saturday Night Live’ cast and staff, who dubbed the space ‘Studio 1-H,’” a press release stated.

Seats at the glass-and-brass backlit bar overlook Sixth Avenue. The multi-floored venue features an oyster bar as well as a private event space dubbed Johnny’s that accommodates up to 50 guests. Actor Robert Pattinson already hosted an “after-after party” there following the premiere of The Batman.

“For all its history, New York is always in need of more classics” Christine Gachot, one of the designers on the project, said. “We hope Pebble bar becomes a regular spot for locals and a destination for visitors; a place that is for everybody, but one that hopefully becomes inextricable from NYC.”

Sounds like a pretty cool vibe. One detail about the venue that wasn’t released? Who’s on the blacklist. Never mind, we already know.
