PARK SLOPE — The beloved gay bar Excelsior will soon open its new location in the South Slope, according to a post on the watering hole's Facebook page.
Excelsior closed its original location at 390 Fifth Ave. in July 2014 after 15 years in business but managed to find a new space at 563 Fifth Ave., between 15th and 16th streets.
The pub aims to open by the end of July, the owners said in a recent Facebook post. They could not be reached immediately for comment on Tuesday.
Two other businesses are opening soon in the South Slope:
► A restaurant called Windsor Roast House aims to open at 426A Seventh Ave. between 14th and 15th streets in early August, co-owner Miguel Jaguande told DNAinfo New York. It will serve sandwiches made with roasted organic meats, as well as veggie burgers, salmon burgers, and other meat and bread concoctions. It's moving into the space that was last occupied by Amira's, and before that, Anthony's.
► An establishment called Tea & Tea will replace Parco, the tiny cafe that closed suddenly in February 2014 after owner Alex Pozzan died. The new business recently posted a sign in the window at 427 Seventh Ave. between 14th and 15th streets, but further details weren't immediately available. The real estate broker who handled the lease declined to comment.
