Stairs Bar taking over the former Il Bagatto space on East 2nd Street
We were a little surprised last weekend to pass by 192 E. Second St. and find the above sign… this space was home the past 18 years to Il Bagatto, which announced its closure in early December.
The new venture is a gay bar called Stairs … and they have been open for happy hour … ahead of an official opening on Saturday… We don't know much else about the place at the moment…
As for Il Bagatto, their menu is still available next door at its sister restaurant, Il Posto Accanto.
