Anderson Cooper's partner Benjamin Maisani is preparing to open his third bar in New York City.

According to commercial real estate blog Commercial Observer, Maisani and his business partner Pablo Raimondi are working on a 5,000-square-foot restaurant and bar at 753 Ninth Avenue in Hell's Kitchen, one of New York City's trendiest gay neighborhoods.

Maisani and Raimondi, who together own a company called Oxido, already operate two bars in New York City: the gay and Soviet-themed bar Eastern Bloc and the straight-friendly bar Bedlam. Both bars are located in the East Village.

James Famularo, a broker at NYCRS, called brokering the deal “very challenging.”

“Finalizing this deal was a long process and sometimes very challenging – the former tenant Vintage Bar was there for 17 years and did not want to leave,” he said. “But with everyone's help we did it. We are all excited for them to open. I'm sure they will create something amazing!”
