Bedford Avenue mainstay Spike Hill will close its doors next month, the space confirmed to Gothamist today, as the building housing the bar and venue is currently under contract. “It’s unlikely that this bar will be a bar for much longer,” revealed an employee at the bar this afternoon.
The employee, who asked to remain anonymous, was cagey about offering a final date for the closure, but conceded that “early December” was a workable timeline. He wasn’t sure about future plans for the space, whether it would be kept intact or torn down, but said he didn’t think “the building is worth anywhere near what the real estate is worth.” One thing was definitely clear: “The building’s under contract for a lot of money.”
At least we can ‘celebrate’ its demise next month.
