News and Notes: The Last Word on The Rodeo Bar – It’s Closing

Rodeo Bar

Last week Now I’ve Heard Everything reported that live music at The Rodeo Bar would be ending after July.  We now have confirmation from The Rodeo that it will be going out of business after July 27th.  The venue posted a statement on its Facebook page, which included the following:

We are deeply saddened to announce that after 27 years in business, Rodeo Bar and Grill is closing its doors after July 27, 2014.

Here at New York’s longest-running honky-tonk, we stayed open during some of the city’s toughest times — Hurricane Sandy, the 2003 blackout, 9/11 — but recent rent increases, combined with a changing landscape, have made it impossible for us continue.

The last live show at The Rodeo will feature The Eugene Chrysler Band and will take place on the next to last night The Rodeo is open, July 26th.
