Hank's Saloon


Brooklyn music bar Hank's Saloon will close by the end of 2018.

On Facebook, the owner writes: "the building was taken over by a new developer who had plans to build big. We knew it was only a matter of time before we got the news that we would have to close Hank’s and move along."

And "it deeply saddens me that one of the last NYC bars of this kind will no longer exist. These places are extremely special to New York and add genuine heart and soul to the community."

They're looking for a new space.

I'd forgotten about Hank's Saloon but this past weekend while in Brooklyn, I ended up driving right past it. Because of gentrification, another distinctive small business unfortunately bites the dust!

One of the few remaining dive bars I can still call home.
