The makeover of the former Navy Yard Cocktail Lounge (which The Times once called the “Scariest Bar in Brooklyn“) is officially underway. The building that housed the legendary spot, 38-44 Washington Avenue, sold for $2,000,000 last October and two weeks ago a permit was issued to renovate the ground-floor space; residential renovation on the upper floors is sure to follow. The building permit calls for a change from a Group 6 to a Group 12 Eating and Drinking Establishing which, as we understand it, means more seats and/or the addition of entertainment. We were unable to reach the owner. Anyone know more details about this place?
