Bill Murray Bartending In Greenpoint: You Will Receive Total Un-Consciousness

River Styx is closing
The old River Styx. We were told when it closed that the disco ball would likely remain in the new space.

We would be remiss if we didn’t mention some big Greenpoint news reported on a lot of other sites, which is that Greenpoint restaurant River Styx (21 Greenpoint Ave.) is reopening as 21 Greenpoint this weekend after a closure and a fire. We said goodbye to their spectacular nachos weeks ago, and now Sean Telo, (previously executive chef at Extra Fancy, also a young’un), has taken over the kitchen, serving up fare sourced from local farms. Gone are the tiki-inspired drinks that led to a glorious headache the day after River Styx’s swan song closing party, and new beverage director is Sean McClure, who comes via Le Bernardin, Dirty French, and Daniel.

Oh, and the legendary Bill Murray will be tending bar at the revamped and renamed space, this Friday and Saturday night starting at 7pm. In case you needed another reason to check it out.

Update: Gothamist has reported that the restaurant will not be open to the public during this time.
