Grace Gaelic Hospitality opened last September, offering a menu of drinks devised by a posse of illustrious women bartenders known for their work at places like Raines Law Room, Clover Club, Death & Co., and a number of other great bars, but apparently the concept just didn’t work for the space. “They could never fill the restaurant side and were consistently losing money,” an employee tells Eater. The bar has now closed; its owners will reopen as something called Nick’s Pizza Bar, a brick-oven-based sibling of sorts to lower Manhattan’s Harry’s Italian Pizza Bar. [Thirsty, Eater]
