Lost Weekend Coffee Shop Closes Down After 5 Years on Orchard Street

It was a Lost Weekend for the brand. Permanently.
As expected, Lost Weekend shuttered after five years on Orchard Street. Coffee shop owner Michael Little packed up the surf boards and equipment for the last time, emptying the premises for good over the weekend. Obligatory paper window treatments are firmly in place with a spray-painted message to former customers, “gone surfing.”
From what we understand, the five-year retail lease on 45 Orchard Street just concluded, and Little simply decided to throw in the towel and move on. There had been some rumors circulating the neighborhood of late about this exact fate, yet nothing conclusive until now.
Lost Weekend debuted in August 2011, and quickly became a de-facto surf shop-cum caffeine dispensary with gear and boards in the windows. In fact, it was not uncommon to see wetsuits line-drying outside during the warmer months. The establishment was a locals spot populated with steady flow of loyal regulars. Recently, though, business had reportedly dropped off.
