Word is spreading on Twitter that Milady's, the well-worn neighborhood bar and restaurant on Prince Street at Thompson, closes for good tomorrow night.
Will miss this NYC establishment RIP MILADY's pic.twitter.com/0WtkNjMEW4— Jesse Marco (@JesseMarco) January 11, 2014
So we just lost Milday's, Gray's Papaya and Cooper Union. When does the municipal name change to "Bank of America presents New York"?— Sasha Frere-Jones (@sfj) January 11, 2014
@evgrieve Milady's closing?! Who do I punch in the balls about this?— david blend (@daveblend) January 12, 2014
We called, but no one is picking up the phone right now.
The building is (or was) for sale. One listing we spotted:
15,000 sf, five story elevator-ed Gorgeous brick building in fantastic SoHo location. Building has been completely gut-renovated. Fully built and fixtured restaurant on Lower Level, Ground, Second floor. Building will be delivered vacant. Incredible opportunity for luxury residential conversion.
Gothamist gets confirmation on the closure tomorrow night. Ughs.
