“The same old Bushwick story,” told us the bar manager, Tuck on the phone today confirming that indeed, Wreck Room is closing on Saturday. “Landlord, new lease, rent increase….” Tuck refused to tell us the specific numbers but told us that the owner was over it already. “After nine years….”
An employee whose name we didn’t catch on the phone mentioned also constant trouble with the maintenance of the place and the landlord.

It’s not just Williamsburg that’s seeing a makeover happen. Bushwick bar — and host of many metal and rock shows — The Wreck Room will close after nine years this weekend. Saturday (6/28) will be last last night to get wrecked there. We’ll miss ya.
