Looks like the owner of Pete’s Candy Store, a bar in Williamsburg, is opening up a new bar in the Rope space on Myrtle Avenue. The new place, called Splitty, will serve Chinese steamed buns. They plan to expand hours to include breakfast and brunch, but upon opening it will just be a bar. They’ll also keep the backyard open. Community Board Two approved the liquor licence last month, but we don’t have an official opening date.
