[Updated] The Continental closes this weekend

Updated June 30: Trigger, the owner, posted on Facebook that his lease was extended for three more months... and they will remain open until October.

It's the last hurrah this weekend for The Continental on Third Avenue at St. Mark's Place.

As first noted way back in January, the bar with the six-shots-of-anything-for-$12 deal was closing after service on June 30. (Their sign says July 1. Their website says Saturday, July 1.)

The Continental was a live music venue from its inception in 1991 through the fall of 2006, when they became home of the five-shots-of-anything-for-$10 promotion before that changed to five-shots-of-anything-for-$12 in the spring of 2017. (Then later six shots...)

Last November, Real Estate Equities Corporation made public its plans to demolish the existing low-rise buildings at 3 St. Mark’s Place, 23 and 25-27 Third Ave. to make way for a 7-story office building.

Aren't people still living in that building? Would love to know what deals are being made to get them out. That building is a survivor, will be sad to see it go.

Question: is The Continental closing, or is it like literally closing?

I am so tired of watching the world I've known for decades just disappear.


Giovanni, I've literally been asking myself this very question all day long.
