Legendary Dive Bar the Blarney Cove to Shutter Soon

New, 10 comments

New York City is losing yet another classic, old school dive bar. Blogger C.O. Moed sends word that the Blarney Cove will close at the end of the month. A bartender told her about the plans to shutter over the weekend. Many of the small businesses on that stretch of East 14th Street have closed recently to make way for a new development, and it sounds like that's the case with the Blarney Cove.

The Blarney Cove is a scruffy bar that's run by friendly people. Most nights, it's full of regulars watching sports, but on the weekends, you might spot a few hipsters or NYU kids knocking back dirt cheap pints of Rolling Rock. Jeremiah Moss writes: "I don't go often enough to the Cove, but when I do, it's always good, always a scene, always a story." For more on the spirit of the bar, check out EV Grieve's post about an unusual afternoon at the Blarney Cove from a few years ago, or read Robert Simonson's A Beer At... piece about the bar from 2010.
