Pour Out a Watered-Down Margarita for Señor Swanky’s

Photo: Daniel Maurer

By the looks of the below auction listing sent to us by a tipster, the one and only Señor Swanky’s has closed its Upper West Side “speakeasy and celebrity hangout” not two years after the closure of its downtown location left a gaping chasm in the heart of the Village. Our phone calls to El Señor have gone unanswered, so we’re fairly certain that nobody is sipping sidewalk margaritas at 531 Columbus Avenue on this glorious day. Still, it’s not hard to imagine that he’ll find a deep-pocketed backer for a Burritoville-style comeback — it’s time for all those celebrities on the wall to step forward! Anyone?
