Union Pool in late October (more by BBG)
Union Pool

Our sincerest apologies to Slowdance, Steel Phantoms, Papertwin, & all who attended for tonight's premature conclusion. Alas, this show will be rescheduled for the near future. Stay tuned & thanks for your patience. Love, UP. -[Union Pool]
Williamsburg bar and music venue Union Pool was shut down in the middle of last night's show by the Department of Health for a reported lapse in permits. The venue did not have comment, but the DOH did to Gothamist:
Union Pool was closed for operating under an expired permit since September 30, 2011. Three months prior to that they were sent a permit renewal notice. They were issued violations for not renewing their permit on October 14th, 2011. On a follow-up permit survey inspection they were closed for having still not submitted a permit renewal application. They may re-open as soon as they provide a receipt for a renewal application from the Department of Consumer Affairs.
Union Pool WILL be open tonight (12/2).

And the music space is a little too small, big staff idiot attitudes, and a lovely bathroom line all the time. Too bad because they sometimes have bands worth checking out besides all the clone metal that plays there.

I feel that we were cheated out of an opportunity to really troll about how shitty that place is.

I wish this post went up at 10am on Monday.

everyone hates on union pool but if you go on a weeknight when it's warm out the patio is really chill to hang at with some friends.

^ Selling PBR to poor hipsters? I doubt they make that much.

More than 2 hipsters in ANY location constitutes a DOH violation

W'burg should be condemned
