Suffolk Arms signage stripped away; Suffolk Arms V2 on the way?

Suffolk Arms, the cocktail lounge on Houston at Suffolk, went dark in early April, as first reported here.

Neat Pour reported on April 9 that Suffolk Arms "would reopen at a later date with a new concept, but the same staff." Neat Pour also said that co-owners Ruben Rodriguez and Giuseppe González are "at odds with one another."

By April 16, there was a sign on the front door noting a temporary closure for "renovation and mechanical upgrades." A week later, González, a "Star Wars" fan, left a cryptic, Yoda-esque message on social media: "Closed, Suffolk Arms now is. See you again, we will."

The Suffolk Arms sign was removed from the corner space last week. The bar's website now features this message: "Suffolk Arms V2.0 Coming Soon."

No idea if this will be from Team González or Team Rodriguez.

Meanwhile, the "renovation and mechanical upgrades" sign remains on the door...

The upscale bar, lined with portraits of famous New Yorkers, opened in February 2016.

Suffolk Arms now closed for renovations and 'mechanical upgrades'

The force is apparently no longer with Suffolk Arms
