Brooklyn is losing yet another beloved locale: Greenpoint mainstay Enid’s is set to shut its doors on March 31, following a trend among local businesses within the past few years.

The popular restaurant and bar announced on Thursday that they would be closing their 560 Manhattan Ave. location at the end of March, according to

The location originally opened in 1999 and became a popular brunch spot and bar. They also featured late-night dance parties and shenanigans, catering to the Brooklyn party scene throughout the past two decades.

Their announcement came via the bar’s Instagram account. The message, captioned “Read it and weep. #lovenids,” reads:

For being her with us for
the last 20 years...
we couldn’t have done it
without you
We’ve made so many friends,
have so many stories to
and it has been our pleasure
On MARCH 31st 2019
we’re closing up shop

The business hopes that locals and regulars will join them over the next two months to celebrate their history and say goodbye:

We hope that you’ll celebrate these next two months.

“Dance” all night on Friday

Have some mimosas (and so many glasses of orange juice that we can’t even believe it) at brunch on Saturday

Do something illegal with the barback in the bathroom that night

Drink too many frozen Harrisons

the next day (Sunday)

While eating pancakes, bacon and bloody marys marvel at how different enids brunch is from club enids

During the week, come in for lunch (before work) or happy hour (after work) and tell us all about it

Have a kid (better change the laws of biology quick) & bring them in for their first lemon slice

Teach them how to talk and saw “I lover those enids pickles” or “I’ll have two beers” (actually happened)

Make an apple pie (great again)

Cut some snowflakes for the dining room shaped snow globe

You don’t have to remember how you got home…

but we hope you’ll remember that you were here.

We will !!!



Enid’s, located near Williamsburg’s McCarren Park, has been a beloved spot for Brooklynites, especially those in the Williamsburg and Greenpoint neighborhoods. Grub Street has noted that, like many neighborhoods throughout Brooklyn and especially near the L train, gentrification has plagued local businesses with drastically rising rents and a plethora of new and expensive apartment buildings.

Matchless, a similarly popular bar formerly located across the street from Enid’s, shut down in January 2018, due to issues with the landlord. It was later reported in July that the building would be demolished.

However, Ashley James, co-owner of Enid’s along with Jaime Eldredge, told Bedford + Bowery on Thursday that there is no “juicy story” behind the closure.

“We served our purpose for a good long time and now it’s time to move on,” she explained.

Follow Enid’s on their website and on their social media accounts (Instagram and Facebook) for more information on events to lead up to their final night.
