Hi-Life Moves In

Remember when 78th and 2nd mentioned about a week ago that a night spot called Hi-Life was trying to grab the liquor license from shut down mexican spot Mary Ann’s?  Well it seems they’ve done more than that and they’re moving in.

From Eater.com

Hi-Life, a pub that serves sushi on the Upper West Side, is giving the east side another go. From a tipster, “The former Mary Ann’s at 73rd & 2nd is going to be Hi-Life (signed lease)” The restaurant had previously tried a location on First Avenue a few years back, which didn’t quite work out. [EaterWire Inbox]

A Citysearch review reveals Hi-Life offers, among other things, sushi and booze.


So, if my tally is correct, with the addition of Hi-life, we can now count 6 sushi places (sushi hana, sake hana, hawaii sushi, umi, iron sushi and hi-life) and 4 bars (bar coastal, brother jimmy’s, doc watson’s, hi-life) — within ONE BLOCK. This includes a sushi spot right next to where Hi-Life will be (sushi hana) and one that’s two doors down from that one (sake hana) – basically three in a row.

 Thanks, Hi-Life.  We needed this like we needed more traffic and frat guys.

 The work permits on the door of the old Mary Ann’s says they’ll be under contruction til October.
