[Updated] The Rodeo Bar closes for good after Sunday
Back on July 10, the folks at Rodeo bar — billed as "NYC’s longest running honky-tonk" — announced that they were closing at the end of the month.
In a message on Facebook, the owners said that recent rent increases, "combined with a changing landscape, have made it impossible for us continue."
At the time, the final gig was set for July 26. However, the last show now will actually be on Sunday. The Facebook invite says that the Dirty Water Dogs will host the final night that will feature "many special guests." The show is set for 9 p.m.
As a tipster told us, the building at 375 Third Ave. at East 27th Street is for sale. According to a listing at Buchbinder & Warren Realty, the asking rent is $58,333. The realty group's past clients have included Starbucks, Duane Reade, 16 Handles and Diesel.
Now the Rodeo Bar Facebook page says that LAST NIGHT was the final show. Details for tonight's show have been removed.
