Nebula nightclub partner to open NYC dumpling spot


You won’t be down in the dumps after a night out partying in Manhattan.

A partner in the hot new $12 million nightclub Nebula is opening a late-night hybrid dumpling concept nearby in the hopes of attracting some partied-out — and hungry — revelers.

The concept, 6th Avenue Steamed Buns, will open in 4,432 square feet in a very visible location at 1027-1029 Ave. of the Americas near Bryant Park. That’s just a few blocks from Nebula’s pulsing party at 135 W. 41st St.

Nebula, as The Post reported, debuted in September 2021 in a three-floor space that totals 11,000 square feet. The club now boasts some 23,000 followers on Instagram, where posts include videos of many guests dancing to spinning DJs. That means lots of mouths looking to eat late-night snacks.

The restaurant’s proprietor, Howard Hui Fang, is a partner in Mixx Lifestyle, which owns Nebula — as well as Mixx Cruise party boats, other restaurant concepts and some wine stores.

Mark Kapnick, executive managing director and principal of Lee & Associates NYC represented 6th Avenue Steamed Buns in the transaction.

“Everybody loves dumplings,” said Kapnick. “We wanted to bring something fun to the Bryant Park area — which has seen an increase in foot traffic since the start of the pandemic — that will cater to the office crowd during the day as well as the year-round tourists and nearby nightlife scene.”

With its closing time scheduled to be 2 a.m. each night, Nebula’s patrons are expected to join the after-theater crowds from Times Square who wander over to partake in the dumplings and other culinary offerings.   

The building owner, MG RETAIL, was represented by Adam Weinblatt of Newmark. The asking rent was $140 per foot.

“We had a lot of interest which can be attributed to the robust foot traffic between Herald Square and Bryant Park as more tourists and office workers continue their return,” Weinblatt added.
