UPPER WEST SIDE — A famed Upper West Side watering hole that lost its landmark neon sign and moved to a new location two years ago will reportedly close for good on May 31.
P&G Bar, whose glowing pink-and-green sign graced the corner of Amsterdam Avenue and West 73rd Street for more than six decades, moved to Columbus Avenue and West 78th Street in 2009.
It says it will then open as a new business, perhaps as soon as June 1. It doesn't give details of the new venture.
"Thanks everyone for the love, support and great music. And you're welcome for the booze," the post says.
A bartender told DNAinfo on Sunday that the bar will reopen under a new name. The bar's owner could not be reached for comment Monday.
P&G Bar's landmark sign was replaced with a plastic banner at its new location. Bar owners told DNAinfo last year that repairing the battered sign could cost $40,000.
