No Fun, Oct. 2017

The name No Fun is ringing true for the bar of same in Hell Square, where a woman died Saturday during a night of partying.

The 25-year-old North Carolina native, Emily Fayssoux, had been inside No Fun on Ludlow Street. According to the New York Post, she sat on a couch and lost consciousness at around 9pm. A friend reportedly found her unresponsive and called the cops. Apparently, the victim was drinking and using cocaine earlier in the day.

She was rushed to Beth Israel hospital where she was pronounced dead.

This latest incident thrusts No Fun back into the local spotlight. Unruliness (sometimes resulting in brawls) seems the norm here, too.

The controversial nightspot at 161 Ludlow Street hasn’t exactly endeared itself to locals, either. Ownership previously filed a multimillion defamation lawsuit against the the LES Dwellers in April 2016, having taken issue with the group’s charge, in emails and during a public CB3 meeting, that the bar lacked a Certificate of Occupancy, and that it damaged their reputation.

The judge dismissed that action in late-April.
