Could This Be the End of Speakeasy Woodson & Ford?

Last week, the speakeasy/event space that hit the scene late last year, Woodson & Ford, texted friends and clients with this sad note: "Pls join us @ woodson & ford for our last party of the year. Tomorrow night 9-2, pls RSVP so we can put your name on the guest list..." For the unacquainted, W&F throws private bashes in a gorgeous and taxidermy heavy subterranean lounge on the corner of Broadway and Bleecker (formerly home to Mr. Black). Attempts at getting an official comment from the space for the last week have been fruitless. But this new tweet seems to corroborate things:

So word is that super-hush speakeasy "Woodson & Ford" is RIP. More precisely, it will become douchey club w/different name.
You do hate to see that. Perhaps the new douchey club will be open to the public, if they don't inherit the liquor license restrictions of their predecessors.

Update: A rep confirms Woodsoon & Ford's current location is doneski, however promises a rebirth elsewhere.
