Been bartending at Motor City since the doors opened almost 17 years ago! We play all kinds of Rock'n'Roll, R&B, Soul, Garage, from the 50's and 60's to Punk to Rock to now. We have set the standard for the best Music on the Lower East Side and everyone has tried to copy us,but we always manage to stay one step ahead of them! Wednesday Happy Hour and Friday Nights are my nights in which the above mentioned music is showcased! Weds. I do gourmet cocktails for 2 for 1 Happy Hour, and Friday Nights we have the amazing Go-Go Goddess, "Anna Copa Cabana" shaking her shimmy to the 60's grooves dance party! Stop by for some fun!That comment, which sums up what it was like at the LES mainstay, was written in October. Now comes word that the around-18 year old bar is closing soon. According to a long-time DJ there, one of the owners sent out an email yesterday letting people know that the lease is up on February 28th, and that they'll be closed by June.
Head over to 127 Ludlow Street for one last drink while you have the chance, and leave your Motor City experiences here in the comments.
