Snug Harbor and the Lamplighter Lounge have both closed.
“Overnight she just closed,” says Mona Srour, who owns the property where Snug Harbor is.
It’s in the same building where Srour’s N&J Cafe is at Lincoln and Edgemoor.
Srour says she recently went to pick up rent at Snug Harbor and saw a sign on the door saying the bar is closed. The owner also instructed anyone interested in buying the bar to call her lawyer.
Srour says she thought she might find the owner at another bar she owned, the Lamplighter Lounge near Lincoln and Woodlawn, but she says she found the same note there.
Finally, Srour received a letter from the bar owner, who explained she had to close due to personal reasons.
“She was sweet about it,” Srour says. “She was good all the time to me.”
The bar owner could not be reached for comment.
“That’s all I know,” Srour says.
She says she’d like to find someone else to rent her building.
For now, though, the door remains locked.
“I can’t even get in.”
