Enid's Bar, which has been a mainstay of Greenpoint for 20 years, will close in March. The bummer news was shared on Enid's Instagram, saying that March 30 would be their final day. Here's more:
We hope that you’ll celebrate these next two months.
“Dance” all night on Friday
Have some mimosas (and so many glasses of orange juice that we can’t even believe it) at brunch on Saturday
Do something illegal with the barback in the bathroom that night
Drink too many frozen Harrisons
the next day (Sunday)
While eating pancakes, bacon and bloody marys marvel at how different enids brunch is from club enids
During the week, come in for lunch (before work) or happy hour (after work) and tell us all about it
Have a kid (better change the laws of biology quick) & bring them in for their first lemon slice
Teach them how to talk and saw “I lover those enids pickles” or “I’ll have two beers” (actually happened)
Make an apple pie (great again)
Cut some snowflakes for the dining room shaped snow globe
You don’t have to remember how you got home…
but we hope you’ll remember that you were here.
We will !!!
Opened on the corner of Manhattan and Driggs in 1999, Enid's was an instant hit, known for their brunch as well as being a debaucherous late-night party spot in the early-'00s heyday of Williamsburg/Greenpoint. There are indie rock connections too. If you've had a Frozen Harrison there, it was named after Les Savy Fav drummer Harrison Haynes who used to be a bartender. There were occasional shows there too back in the day, with Fiery Furnaces playing their first-ever show there.
Matchless, which used to be right across the street from Enid's, closed a year ago. Enid's, we'll miss ya.
