The bar originally opened in 1992 and will close on June 22nd, marking another example of the quickly disappearing old-school pubs in North Williamsburg.

Other recent bar closings include Rosemary’s (188 Bedford Ave.) and The Abbey (536 Driggs Ave.) in Williamsburg and Enid’s (560 Manhattan Ave.) in Greenpoint.

    Why is it closing? Does anyone know? This place is a beer institution.

    Enough. Can we just say enough already? Stop this madness. And I’ll bet 30 years from now people will say “what a shame all that character left the neighborhood!” or else they won’t care at all. Heartbreaking either way.

    It said it opened in 1992. I remember going to this bar in the 1970s and 1980s. Was it under a different name? Does anybody remember? I seem to remember it being Mugs back then but I guess I am wrong.
