Permanent Holiday

New, 3 comments

The infrequent hours and recent temporary shuttering of venerable St. Marks Place dive bar Holiday Cocktail Lounge now makes a whole lot of sense: Vanishing New York reports that the bar's proprietor, Stefan Lutak, passed away at age 89. As is appropriate for the longtime operator of an old neighborhood landmark, his memorial service will be held at an even older neighborhood landmark, Peter Jarema Funeral Home (est. 1906). So what's to come of the old literary and punk hang? No one seems to know. [VNY, previous]
