Last splash: The Deep End Club is closing on 1st Avenue

After nearly three years at 156 First Ave. between Ninth Street and 10th Street, the Deep End Club is closing up shop.

Proprietor Tennessee Thomas posted this on her Instagram...

Nice As Fuck is the supergroup with Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley), Erika Forster (Au Revoir Simone) and Thomas on drums. Last week the trio made their debut on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert."

Thomas first opened the 60s-style vintage boutique featuring items from local artists and designers as a pop-up shop ... and decided to keep it going. The Deep End Club also hosted environmental workshops and impromptu concerts.

The shop's name came from her father, Pete Thomas, the longtime drummer for Elvis Costello & the Attractions.

Per Billboard: in 2014:

"He had a thing called the Deep End Club when he was young and crazy," says the 29-year-old shop owner and drummer. On tour, in his younger years, her father would jump into hotel swimming pools fully clothed whenever someone declared "a Deep End Club meeting."

Sales will continue on the Deep End website.

This place was expensive and made you feel you weren't cool enough to shop there.

Again, good riddance.

These closings are good because it tells these self-absorbed insular hipsters they can't set up shop here anymore.
