Drying of NYC: Death & Co. Closed for Next Week, Future Again Murky as SLA Lowers the Hammer

New, 15 comments

East 6th Street's perennially embattled Death & Co. is under the gun again. After shuttering temporarily last spring, the cocktail lounge is being forced to cough up $10,000 to the State Liquor Authority—and close for a week—after it came to light that two of its owners aren't listed on the liquor license, The Villager reports. Death & Co.'s website confirms the closure (right), which begins today and runs through next Friday. And according to The Villager, things may get worse yet for the venue: the provisional liquor license it's been operating with comes up for renewal soon, and you can bet neighbors will try hard again to get the place shut down for good. In a word, dicey.
