GREENPOINT — The low-key cocktail bar Beloved closed this week after more than three years on Manhattan Avenue.

The bar, at 674 Manhattan Ave., shuttered at the end of August, according to a sign on its door and posts on the bar's Facebook page.

Co-owners Vivek Sreekumar and Aaron Manheim opened the spot in 2012 in hopes of becoming a neighborhood spot serving high-end cocktails.

It's unclear why they decided to close.

"Thank you to all of you who have supported us with your patronage and friendships," read the sign, which was posted to a local Facebook group. "The last three years have been an incredible journey, and though our clubhouse is no more, the friendships and family we built here will last our lifetimes."

The owners did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
