Say What? Wine Bar to Liberty Place?

Michael Klein is reporting that Vintage Irving, a New York wine bar is close to signing a lease at the Shops at Liberty Place.

What doesn’t make sense is that the bar would be on the second floor by the food court where the Dale & Thomas popcorn store had been located. First off that doesn’t seem like a very big space and secondly, why open a wine bar that is completely isolated from street traffic and thirdly, there’s not much in traffic on the second floor there after lunchtime and certainly not at night when you would expect a wine bar to be busiest.
