Anthony Mackie’s Bed-Stuy Bar ‘Should Open Next Year’


In August, word surfaced that Anthony Mackie — an actor best-known for his role in The Hurt Locker and currently starring as a former Black Panther in Night Catches Us — was planning to open a bar in Bed-Stuy. At the time, a September opening was projected for the establishment, but today, via an interview Mackie did earlier with NPR, comes news that the bar, called No Bar, “should open next year.” Vague, yes, but less vague is the fact that Mackie, who splits his time between the neighborhood and New Orleans, is modeling the place after late-1800s France, and building all of its furniture.
