Oh, this had better not be true

October 30, 2011

I still haven’t recovered from the death of McHale’s. Now this.

Apparently the Subway Inn may be closed. Forever. I hate that.

Here’s the Eater report:

Potentially terrible news for lovers of classic New York City bars, as it appears the Subway Inn is no longer with us. A tipster reported that “the Subway Inn looks like it has closed for good”, and we turned up this picture from last night showing gates rolled down with its iconic neon lights turned off. A call to the listed phone number revealed that it has been disconnected, which hints that the Upper East Side has lost a true legend. The place seemed to have hit on hard times recently and had even resorted to selling Atomic Wings in a last ditch effort to drum up some business. Maybe this is just a temporary vacation or someone is interested in taking the space over and running a dive bar, but it ain’t looking good.

Say it ain’t so.

    Bad news! The good news is I was at Ruby’s last night and they may not be closing after all. But this still sucks!

    If we’re lucky someone will open a cupcake store.

      They already destroyed Gino with a cupcake store a block away. Of course, I apparently have seriously underestimated the number of cupcake stores this city is able to support.

    Chill out. They’ve re-opened. They were simply closed for renovations. Not sure what a renovation in the Subway Inn would look like, applying new duct tape to the booths?
