Former owner of NYC's loudest bar is new 'night mayor'

Ariel Palitz is New York City’s first nightlife mayor Former owner of NYC's loudest bar is new 'night mayor'
Bennie Garza | 08 March, 2018, 12:48

Palitz was born and raised in New York City and was a promoter and event planner at clubs like SOBs and the Tunnel before she opened Sutra in 2004. Palitz attributed the noise complaints to an especially vigilant neighbor; the police scrutiny prompted her to advocate for fellow entrepreneurs as a member of the New York Nightlife Association and Community Board 3's SLA Licensing Committee.

"Both sides feel unheard", Palitz said of the "Both sides feel that things are unfair". The self-described "New York nightlife preservationist" envisioned Sutra as "a common ground for the diverse expression of NY, from hip-hop to rock music to reggae to Bollywood", she told Bedford + Bowery shortly after Sutra closed after a 10-year run. "But I don't think that will change even if I have to be in the office at 9 AM". There, she was introduced to the brass-knuckle politics of night life - chiefly through her dealings with what she has called the "no-more bar contingency". Though she later claimed she was misquoted, the comment triggered a firestorm and some in the neighborhood called for her removal from the board.

Palitz will oversee a 12-member board, and other duties may include promoting the city's nightlife industry, and working with venues to figure out ways to ensure their survival. While she admits that there were times in her career when she personified "what the no-bar movement rejected", she also claimed that she has always tried "to find solutions that work for everyone".

The Office of Nightlife was created a year ago through legislation sponsored by Councilmember Espinal, who was instrumental in repealing the "Cabaret Law" that limited public dancing in New York's nightclubs and bars.

Espinal spearheaded efforts to create a nightlife mayor following years of concerns from artists in the outer boroughs who said they were being unfairly inhibited by the city's cabaret laws.

"The nightlife community will have a well-rounded voice in Ariel Palitz and the administration will have a unique perspective on nightlife issues", said Espinal (D-Brooklyn).

"That's the scene that has set the trend for years and has made things in the city so interesting", Espinal told the Times.

"You can't crush culture - or subculture - in NY", she said. NY culture and night life still thrive in a very real way.
