RIP for Bounce Deuce, known for "eye candy staff" and plastic tubes of beer?

Eater reports that Bounce Deuce, the bar with a name too easy to mock, may be closed. Eater notes that there have been no signs of life here at the corner of Second Avenue and Sixth Street, home to the Table Tapper -- a 3-foot plastic tube that holds 116-ounces of beer. (Bounce, its big brother on the UES, remains open.)

I walked by myself last night. All shut down. Fortunately, the BD Web site lives on...(and they're still advertising the Margarito fight from Jan. 24!)



Never been to the Deuce? Take a look via BD's photostream...

The hard wooden chairs looked so unappealing. This place has been so many things in the last ten years, I hope something good sticks...please, no more noodles or nail salons!

I'd go for a good diner. Keep it simple - bacon and beer.

Yeah, this is another seemingly doomed corner... I vaguely remember different things coming and going. Nothing memorable the last 10 years or so.

I imagine "eye candy staff" must mean something very different to a gay man. Or a kung-fu master.

In the sports vernacular...It is going, going, it's GONE!!!!!
Closed up without a word or squeak. The word was that they couldn't make a financial go of it no matter how much cheap beer was served. That's why the original Bounce Sports Bar uptown sold it to these owners who walked in the end.
