‘Paulaner’ Goes Flat, Closes Bowery Brewery After 4 Years

Last modified February 27, 2018 at 8:22 am

The Paulaner Brauhaus on the Bowery is no more. The franchised brewery – the first and only stateside location for the company – went belly up this month. Thus concludes little more than four tumultuous years at Bowery. A call to Paulaner verifies the rumors we had been hearing since earlier this month. The outgoing […]

Sammy Fuchs and Friends: Revisiting the Legendary Sammy’s Bowery Follies [HISTORY]

Last modified September 21, 2016 at 11:48 am

When we last came together around history, our subject was Weegee; it is therefore apropos that we focus on one of his closest friends. A famous man throughout the old Bouwerie. A man whom, without Weegee, would not have had his establishment documented so thoroughly. A man named Sammy Fuchs, the proprietor of Sammy’s Bowery Follies. Sammy Fuchs […]

Invader’s Lower East Side Mosaics Revealed; Rumors of Arrest Last Week [PHOTOS]

Posted November 16, 2015 at 9:29 am

Invader lived up to his name last week upon arrival on the shores of New York City. The French-based street artist, who specializes in 8-bit tile mosaics, has spent plenty of time embedding video-game-inspired artwork throughout the Five Boroughs. Unfortunately, Invader reserved the biggest mosaics for points outside the city. Like the Joey Ramone in […]

Paulaner Brauhaus on the Bowery Seeks 12-Table Sidewalk Cafe

Posted August 17, 2015 at 5:15 am

The barely two-year-old Paulaner Brauhaus continues to struggle for business. The place is rarely at capacity, and is usually a ghost town during prime hours. A mural by Beau at the end of last year helped on the visibility front, but probably wasn’t enough. So, ownership now seeks sidewalk seating for greater visibility. According to […]

Paulaner Brauhaus on the Bowery Trying to Boost Image with Mural by Beau

Posted November 10, 2014 at 9:29 am

Paulaner Brauhaus is doing everything under the sun to stay alive. Its desperation is as clear as the new dual-hued mural painted to its exterior. That kitschy chalkboard paneling installed after the most recent reboot was just overwritten with some artwork by Beau. The street artist spent the last few days decorating. Design and color […]

Paulaner Revamp on the Bowery Opens Tomorrow and Boasts New Personnel

Last modified May 29, 2014 at 11:22 am

Two months after its demise, the epic fail that was Paulaner Brauhaus is finally taking its mulligan. With an all-black exterior and shortened moniker (now just Paulaner), the reinvented German brewery-pub is set to reopen tomorrow (it’s been in press previews), a few days earlier than the initial projection. And it will do so with […]

Paulaner Brauhaus 2.0 Reopening on the Bowery June 2

Last modified May 13, 2014 at 8:17 am

Last Friday, the Paulaner Brauhaus epic-fail pried its kitschy signage from the marquee of 265 Bowery. It was yet another maneuver to help rebrand the flailing brewery, which closed last month for the makeover treatment. One employee recently told us that it looked too much like an Applebee’s to succeed. Nevertheless, we are told that version […]

Paulaner Brauhaus Will Reopen on the Bowery and Feel Less Like an Applebee’s

Posted May 8, 2014 at 5:47 am

So, it turns out Paulaner Brauhaus will indeed return to the ranks of the living. Upon opening last fall, the ambitious brewery and beer hall struggled to attract the masses and fill tables. It papered the windows in early April with the intention of going for a mulligan. The only true announcement to the public […]

Paulaner Brauhaus on the Bowery Closes for Unspecified ‘Refurbishments’

Posted April 9, 2014 at 5:36 am

It took well over a year (and a heap of controversy) to complete the build-out … and a paltry five months to come undone. Paulaner Brauhaus at 265-267 Bowery is down for the count, at least temporarily. The ambitious brewer and beer hall closed for business on Sunday for the all-too-common, unspecified “refurbishments.” We all […]
