Ride on, Cowboys: Stillwater Bar & Grill closes after 15 years on 4th Street

Multiple EVG readers shared the news that the Stillwater Bar & Grill closed its doors on Fourth Street last night after 15 years on the block here between Second Avenue and the Bowery.

At least one regular chalked up the closure to a "landlord dispute."

Since 2008, the neighborhood sports bar also served as home to the NYC Cowboys — the official alumni group for Oklahoma State University.

News of Stillwater's closure made it all the way to this Oklahoma State superbooster ...

The bar was actually not named for the city in north-central Oklahoma, but rather owner Matt Keane's love for fishing.

Stillwater Bar & Grill opened in August 2004.

It should be noted that Stillwater was also a haven for the indie theatre crowd, both those making and those viewing work up and down East 4th St. at NYTW, The Kraine/Red Room, La MaMa, IATI/Circulo.
