I take no responsibility for how you interpret that headline. Hot gay sports bar Boxers is considering keeping the doors on its new Hell’s Kitchen spot closed until 4:00 pm, ’cause the temptation might be too great for the kiddies at Sacred Heart . . .
HELL’S KITCHEN — Boxers may only ope
n after the school bell rings.
At a tense meeting with the local block association, the owners of a proposed Hell’s Kitchen gay sports bar said they are considering keeping the bar closed when a nearby school is open.
The owners of Boxers NYC in Chelsea agreed to open the main floor of their proposed Hell’s Kitchen outpost at 1 p.m. at a meeting with the Community Board 4 Business Licenses and Permits Committee earlier this month. The bar’s rooftop patio would open later on school days, at 4 p.m.
Many angry and vocal residents voiced their concerns about the controversial bar, repeating that they don’t want it near two schools in the area. The building used by the bar would be across from Sacred Heart of Jesus School, and abut the PS 111’s playground.
