Breaking: Cooper 35 Asian Pub is Closed

Posted on: January 31st, 2011 at 6:49 am by

The following photo is a harbinger of bad news.  Two days after the rally at its doorstep, Cooper 35 Asian Pub went belly up and is currently clearing house.

A Boogie reader sent us the above snapshot, along with the following caption:

Not looking good for fans of 35 Cooper square. We also noticed people dismantling the planters on the patio to salvage the plants apparently.

After receiving the intel, we stopped by ourselves to elicit more detail.  Well, kiddies, it’s official. Saturday night was reportedly the last night of drinking at the NYU watering hole.  Cargo vans were parked curbside to receive their due and proper of bar innards. We were told that the owners “lost their lease.”

And as our tipster noted, there were a few people in the garden salvaging some greenery.

You can head over here to sign a petition to save the building itself from demolition. At 185-years-old, the Federal-style house is the last of its kind in Cooper Square and deserves a landmark.
