There's no mention of the temporary closure on their website or social media properties. Their phone is currently not in service.
Cholo Noir, a Chicano-inspired bar-restaurant, opened in July 2017.
As previously reported, CB3 twice denied a liquor license for the proprietors in 2016 ... among other reasons, there are 20-plus full on-premises liquor licenses within 500 feet of the address. CB3 members also didn't see much public benefit from the concept on a mostly residential block in a nightlife-saturated neighborhood.

In 2014, the owners received $15,000 by winning the New York Public Library’s New York StartUP! Business Plan Competition.
