The Attic, gutted

Our pal Andy, who was probably the best customer the Attic ever had, snapped this heartbreaking photo and talked to one of the folks involved who told him that a new bar will be replacing the demolished dive.  As our other pal Inna notes:

I love how the Chinese lanterns are still there!

Damn, remember when the only thing threatening the Attic used to be that music-hating NIMBY neighbor?

    So many lovely physical bars are ground-up remodeled instead of cleaned up and tweaked a little. Do people hate a good old-fashioned bar? I think the Attic was very attractive, pretty much a model of what a bar should look like. Is there some sanitation reason this always seems to happen when a bar is remodeled? Or do people have investor money they have to spend? I really hope when the Lexington turns over, they hold on to the good stuff.

    Loyal maybe, but prob not the “best,” based on the amount of money I was actually spending there ;-) . To answer the above question that place needed more than a few tweaks to be a viable business locale. The building was seriously fucked and that’s kinda why the owner moved out anyhow. Hope the new bar doesn’t suck too much!!
