We were pretty bummed when we found out that beloved bar/music venue Trash Bar would join the long, long list of Williamsburg bar/music venue closings, but it looks like there’s some light at the end of the tunnel in Bushwick. Erm… meaning the folks behind Trash Bar will DEFINITELY be opening a new location in Bushwick, according to the bar’s Facebook.
The rumors are true. Trash Bar is temporarily closing its doors in March and we have definitive plans to re-open at a yet undisclosed Bushwick location. I, the staff, and a great many fans that have affectionately patronized The Trash Bar over the years have watched Williamsburg change firsthand. While these days the increasing rental rates are a well-known force to be reckoned with, the neighborhoods evolution has been exciting to watch and has, in many ways, been great both for business and for the nabe’s energy and action.
Their note didn’t provide any kind of timeline or specify where in Bushwick they’d be opening up shop (pssst… there’s already enough bars on Troutman, guys), but wouldn’t it be something if they opened up in the old Wreck Room space? They wouldn’t have to redecorate at all.
