Mars Bar is only recently dead and gone, and it seems almost too soon to be reading that Hank’s Saloon in Boerum Hill, which drink historian David Wondrich called “the dive-iest bar left” in the neighborhood, might soon be gone, too. Brownstoner is reporting that the building housing Hank’s, as well as an adjacent building and a neighboring lot, will be hitting the open market next week. This doesn’t bode well. [Brownstoner]
