Mars Bar: Is Tonight Its Last Night?


Is tonight the last hurrah for Mars Bar? EV Grieve points out that June 30 was the date certain reliable sources had mentioned as the last day for the iconic East Village dive. It’s also the date that Joe’s Locksmith, which is next door, and some upstairs tenants are moving out, pre-demolition. Yet, apparently, there has been a weekend liquor order from the bar, which points to a weekend of frivolity, or a really great last night. Get thee to Mars Bar, in any case, stat, as the bar stools have already started going as souvenirs to those sober and intrepid enough to actually drag them home. As for those $10 apartments of the future…we’ll see. [EV Grieve]
