Just a couple months after Trash Bar (albeit a fictitious version of it) was called a “New York landmark” on network television, the Williamsburg dive has finally announced its closing date. Here’s the Facebook message that was posted over the weekend.
End of an era…THE OFFICIAL FINAL NIGHT THE TRASH BAR will be open is Saturday, June 27th…Don’t miss out on what’s sure to be an epic and chaotic night…until then come hang with us for the final few weeks we are still open…great live music, drink specials, and what’s voted the best Karaoke spot in all of Brooklyn…
“If you obey the rules, you miss all the fun.”
The decade-old venue, located down the block from where James Murphy’s new wine bar just opened, announced in January that it would be “following the flow of creativity” to Bushwick, but there hasn’t yet been an announcement about a reopening.
Trash Bar’s owner has been lobbying to open a new establishment at 63 Montrose, but he has assured neighbors that the quieter bar and restaurant is separate from the planned Trash Bar reboot.
We’ve sent the bar a Facebook message and will let you know if we hear anything. In the meantime, plan to pour one out all over the floor, just like you have before.
