Bleecker Bob’s to Close in Early 2013

[Photo: Bleecker Bob’s]Two beloved downtown institutions announced closures almost one year ago – Holiday Cocktail Lounge and Bleecker Bob’s record store. The former already shuttered and will eventually become a “tavern-restaurant” by Pirate Brands serving staples like fish-n-chips. Bleecker Bob’s held on for the interim, all the while seeking a new home for its inventory. Local blogs helped in the effort, trying to woo the Greenwich Village shop to the East Village or Lower East Side.
Nevertheless, a Facebook message over the weekend reveals that Bleecker Bob’s will probably continue buying and selling for another two months at 118 West Third Street. Then it’s off to the great unknown. Per the message:
Well, it’s SAD NEWS people.
Don’t really know how to say this so here goes…..
After 40+ years in existence, BLEECKER BOB’S will be closing!!!!
Looks like another month or 2 maybe. We’ll definitely be open thru to the New Year, maybe even a couple of months into 2013.
As of right now though we’re still buying, selling and trading music PLUS we have new tshirts in stock so you can remember us and tell your kids or grandkids about the legendary Bleecker Bob’s!!
Hope everyone has a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season!!!
Take care all!!!
