Fans of Port 41, a notorious dive and bikini bar in the shadow of the Port Authority Bus Terminal (and an A Beer At vet), were sorely disappointed yesterday to discover the bar closed with signage indicating it was shuttered by the NYPD. The bar has a court appearance on Monday—the owner, reached over the phone, called the raid "bullshit"—and if all goes well, they'll be back open that night. But sadly, no bikini bar drinking for the weekend.
It's a sad era for bikini bars as the last two years alone have seen the demise of Deno's Party House, Deno's Bikini Bar, Navy Yard Cocktail Lounge, and Hook & Ladder II.
