2 Williamsburg Bars to Close

Once upon a time, there were only three bars in all of the Northside (Greenpoint Tavern, Turkey Nest and Mugg’s (or before that, Ship’s Mast)). OK, five if you count Kokie’s, but no one went there for a drink or to socialize. Back then, Mona’s and Sophie’s were akin to a local. I haven’t been to either in years, but its still sad to know they won’t be there.

Not to mention the fact that Sophie’s spawned Sweetwater Tavern (at the time, the fourth bar in the nabe).
