Lower East Side nightlife man Rob Shamlian is having a tough time lately. He can't seem to unload bars fast enough, he says he's being terrorized by the LES Dwellers neighborhood group, and there are rumors he's in financial straits. Then, on top of all that, last night cops raided his Mexican lounge, Los Feliz. The bar's violation list is long, says Bowery Boogie, but it's unclear what specifically brought about this raid. When cops showed up around 10 p.m. the place was virtually empty. An orange "closed by court order" sticker is now hanging outside.
Mezetto owner, Sarid Drory has put bids in for Los Feliz and Spitzers Corner, which were approved last month by the community board. He promised to turn the places into upscale restaurants.
