Bar Chord to Open in Ditmas Park; Pianos Takes Over the Living Room

• Bar Chord is coming to Ditmas Park. The Cortelyou Road bar and music venue from husband-and-wife team Jonny and Christy Sheehan will have a vintage jukebox and collection of vintage guitars for sale. Read more at Ditmas Park Corner. [DPC]

• Is Pearl Street Diner in the financial district closed? EV Grieve suspects as much, but in any case, a new 7-Eleven is setting up shop just a few blocks away. [EV Grieve]

• The owners of Pianos on Ludlow are taking over the Living Room next door. Update: “The folks from Pianos have looked at the space but so have others,” says the latter bar’s owner, Jennifer Gilson. “They have no business connection with The Living Room.” [Eater]

Whole Earth Bakery and Kitchen will go out of business tomorrow. The St. Marks Place establishment is closing after 34 years in business. Neighbors will throw a good-bye party at 6 p.m., and on Sunday, remaining equipment will be auctioned off. [EV Grieve]
