35 Cooper Asian Pub Is Closed


Although its neighbors rallied last Friday to save the building that housed it, 35 Cooper Asian Pub gave up the ghost this weekend.

Bowery Boogie reports that the bar closed permanently on Saturday night and was cleaned out over the weekend; reportedly, the owners lost their lease. What will happen to 35 Cooper Square itself remains uncertain; it seems that the fate of the 186-year-old building now lies in the hands of the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
