le roi est mort

It’s official and it’s sad, the Bruckner Bar will not reopen after Hurricane Sandy.

Flood damaged and with landlord related issues, the venerable SoBro landmark did not recover from that devastating storm.

“The Bruckner” has served alcohol and SoBro nightlife for as long as anyone can remember. My first night there felt welcoming and real, as if I’d been coming there for years.

The food was good, rarely great, but better than it had to be for a simple neighborhood pub. And the staff were all your friends.

NY Magazine readers gave it 9 out of 10.

Now News 12 is announcing its closing.

Everyone who lives in this tight-knit artist community has Bruckner memories.

Alas, that’s all we’ve left. RIP. And sorely missed.

vive le roi!
