Deli marks the end of the revolving door of bars on the corner of 4th Street and 2nd Avenue

Photos and reporting by Stacie Joy

The long-vacant bar space on the SE corner of Second Avenue and Fourth Street is undergoing a gut renovation.

A worker at the scene told us that a deli-market is in the works for the storefront (an actual deli-market and not a smoke shop)...
The worker did not know about an opening date.

In 2021, the English-style pub Queen Vic became just Queen ... before evolving into Watering Hole. The for-rent sign showed up in September 2022. 

Queen Vic had a decent run, opening in September 2010,  which ended the revolving door of bars here with awnings, including 2x4, Ambiance and Evolution.

I'm always happy to see another sandwich-making enterprise. I hope this business works out.

Deli-market? There's a market on the NW corner of E 4th & Second Ave and a deli-market on Second Ave between E4th & E5th Streets but good luck. Happy to have one less bar.

@Carol, there's also one on 2nd ave & 3rd St and 1st Ave & 4th St.

If it's a really good sandwich shop, that'd be great for the block but another bodega-ish thing ain't helping.

I call it progress. Gen Z in particular seems to be at odds with alcohol, probably the best thing about them.

I believe The Bar was in this spot too, back in the early '90s
