After a few weeks of rumors, B-Side officially announced on March 11 that the 17-year-old neighborhood bar on Avenue B was closing at the end the month.
They had planned for a few closing festivities leading up to this past weekend.
However, B-side's end came sooner than expected after Mayor de Blasio announced that, starting on March 17, NYC's bars and restaurants would need to close — save for food delivery and takeout — during the coronavirus crisis.
A tipster tells us that new owners will be eventually be taking over the space, though they don't plan on keeping the pool table.
B-Side opened in 2003 here between 12th Street and 13th Street.
