As far as you and your landlord, I don't think there is anything he has to do.

As far as the bar itself, they have to get a liquor license. The local community board can ask the State Liquor Authority to deny the license if they feel there are too many bars in the area or the bar will be a particular nuicence. That is your most viable point of attack

If after the bar opens, and you do experience problems, you can complain to the various city agencies with oversite (DEP, Buildings, Consumer Affairs) and they can act to correct the problems (ie fine the bar).
