The Black Rose has closed on Avenue A; welcome Tompkins Square Park Art Bar (temporarily)
The Black Rose, which billed itself as a neighborhood rock-and-roll bar, has closed at 117 Avenue A between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place.
EVG regular Daniel shared these photos and the tip.
The Marshal took legal possession yesterday of the nearly two-year-old bar on behalf of landlord Steve Croman.
The space was quickly cleaned out...
As we understand it, the Black Rose management told Jerry, the artist who occasionally takes up residence on the corner of Avenue A and Seventh Street, and company to take what they wanted... and so for at least part of the day there was the all-new Tompkins Square Park Art Bar...
...featuring framed posters of Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, velvet rope, red banquettes, bar stools, a disco ball and other former Black Rose items along the Seventh Street entrance to Tompkins Square Park...
No. 117 was the longtime home, until August 2013, of the Odessa Cafe & Bar.
