St. Mark's Ale House has closed
The sports bar/restaurant at 2 St. Mark's Place apparently closed for good after service on July 3, according to a tipster. (The Ale House website is down and the phone goes unanswered.)
The closure apparently caught the remaining staff off-guard. Our tipster noted that the Ale House, which opened in 1995, had been going downhill in the past year with the loss of a favorite bartender and some regulars.
No official word about what will become of the prime space here at Third Avenue. There's a rumor that the owner is going to reopen the place as a Greek restaurant.
