The Truth About The NYC Bar Pete Davidson Bought

Pete Davidson has been making major news for himself in the last few years. Whether it's for his high-profile relationship with Kim Kardashian or rumors of joining Jeff Bezos on a future space adventure, the comedian and "Saturday Night Live" star is no stranger to making headlines. He has also kept his business dealings as diversified as the rest of his life. He co-owns a home with his mother, has purchased a Staten Island ferry with fellow "SNL" castmate Colin Jost, and most recently has been involved in the purchase of a New York City bar with other star-studded investors.

Davidson joins fellow celebrities Mark Ronson, Justin Theroux, Nicholas Braun, and Jason Sudeikis in investing with the team behind other hospitality endeavors such as The Jane, The Smile, and Ray's Bar to open up Pebble Bar, according to WWD. The new bar is on-site of a historic part of the New York City club scene and opened its doors to the public on March 2, 2022. Here's what's behind Davidson's new business venture.

The history behind Pete Davidson's new venture

Although Pebble Bar may be new to the NYC city center, it is actually taking over the location of a legendary club that had over 100 years of drink-slinging stories. Located at 1240 Sixth Avenue in the top three floors of a four-story townhouse situated at Rockefeller Center is where Pebble Bar sets up shop. The site was formally home to the legendary bar called Hurley's, which was in business from 1892 to 2000 and boasted famous clientele like Johnny Carson, David Letterman, and American beat-poet Jack Kerouac, whose work inspired the name Pebble Bar, according to the business' website.

Pete Davidson will be able to reach his new watering hole easily by elevator, or he may be privy to the "secret entrance" through Rockefeller Center, the location where "Saturday Night Live" films. The three floors feature a number of bars, with classic and updated details, including the top floor — lovingly named "Johnny's" — which is set aside for private events of around 50 guests, according to the New York Post. That's where they also revealed that the star of the new movie "The Batman," Robert Pattinson, was among the first to host an intimated get-together to commemorate the film's opening. With celebrities constantly in the area, Davidson's new bar already seems set to have some legendary stories of its own.
