Lolita Bar Closing Tuesday, for Good This Time
Any Lower East Siders out there feeling a lack of that Cheers-esque vibe which existed for so many years? The vibe increasingly replaced by the likes of Stanton Social and The DL? You might not enjoy this news.
After business this Tuesday (July 30) night, Lolita Bar, colloquially called “Lolita’s,” will be shutting its historic wooden doors for good.
What we know right now is that owner Katie Kutscher sold this dark corner bar at 266 Broome Street to someone … there is nothing of record yet confirming this sale. But then again, things haven’t exactly been A-OK since this past February. At the time Matthew Kelly of Marshall Stack was planning to purchase the joint, yet those plans fell through after that whole run-in with the 7th Precinct for underage drinking (full CB3 rescinded their initial approval). We are told that more will be revealed come Tuesday night…
