John McDonald to Close MercBar After Service Tonight

Photo: Foursquare

After more than 20 years in business, restaurateur John McDonald is shuttering his Soho tavern MercBar. Tonight is the bar's very last night. McDonald tells Grub Street: "After 7,519 nights of non-stop nightlife the wear and tear on the building has taken its toll....To every person who worked here, to every customer that walked in for the last two decades, I thank you for it all." No word yet on what will happen to the space, but it sounds like McDonald will not be involved.
