Pouring one out for the former Pourhouse!

Back on Wednesday, workers removed the Village Pourhouse neon signage on Third Avenue ... the sports bar closed in April after 10 years of hosting every neighborhood pub crawl...

Workers, for now, did leave some remnants of the Pourhouse on the 11th Street side...

In July, CB3 OK'd a new liquor license for the owners behind the Ainsworth, the upscale sports-bar chainlet with three NYC locations as well as one in Hoboken, N.J., and Las Vegas. No word on an opening date for the Ainsworth East Village.

And someone has kept the memory alive of the tenant that never was — E.Vil, the rock-and-roll bar with big plans and an active Instagram account.

The Village Pourhouse still looks like the Village Pourhouse outside, but E.Vil is on the way

Village Pourhouse is closing on 3rd Avenue; E.Vil is coming soon

I wish they'd bring back Roll N Roaster. Loved that place.

I wish this was still the Bargain Spot; remember when the neighborhood was full of pawnshops?
