A tipster sends word that Matt Levine's boozy juice and smoothie bar Cocktail Bodega and its basement club CBU are both closed for good. There had been rumors that both would reopen over the weekend, but that is no longer the case. Another tipster tells Eater that the building needs a total overhaul of the plumbing system which will require gutting the ground level and basement spaces, thus destroying all of the improvements that Levine and his partners put into the project.
Alluding to the building issues, Levine confirms the closing. The restaurateur notes: "It's unfortunate, because summertime is fresh juice and smoothie time, but we had to close for building wide improvements. Cocktail Bodega will be relocating in the meantime until the building upgrades are finalized."
