Greenpoint’s Manhattan Inn To Close Permanently in November

We learned this afternoon that beloved, classy-ass Greenpoint piano bar The Manhattan Inn would soon close, and sighed another in the series of long sighs reserved for press releases about our favorite things abruptly dying.

November 13th will be the last night of a run that started in 2009, and featured innumerable soft-lit date nights, blackout dance parties, and unusually intimate concert performances. There are at least a few more of those planned to mark its passing. Inn booker LPR Presents has scheduled stacked shows right up to the end. (The full slate can be found below.)

UPDATE: The owners promise to open something new in the existing space (and not some nebulous future space as previously thought) following an indefinite renovation period. It promises to be quite different, though. So now, and continuing into the uncertain future, Greenpoint grand piano vibes remain decidedly TBD.

Remaining shows are first come, first serve.
