Wreck Room Bar Closed Because of Rodent Problem, City Says

BUSHWICK — Rockers and revelers aren't the only ones flocking to this graffiti-decked watering hole — so are the rats.

The popular bar Wreck Room shuttered last month when the city found "rodent activity," a spokeswoman for the Department of Health said.

Since the business' closure March 22, DJs have had to cancel their shows and clients have lamented the news on Facebook

"So sorry everyone, but upon arrival I found out the bar is closed for the weekend," posted DJ Andre Prozorov of his unexpected show cancellation.

Staff at Wreck Room said they hoped to reopen Monday evening or some time this week, and they denied they had a rodent problem.

"Primarily we had a problem with standing water due to plumbing issues," said an employee who asked not to be named on Monday. "We have another inspection and should be opening tonight."
