South Slope’s loss is Gowanus’ gain, as Lucky 13 Saloon, which opened on 13th Street at 5th Avenue in 2003, is moving to a larger location (shown above) at 644 Sackett Street, between 3rd and 4th Avenues.
According to owner Melody Henry, the original bar will close in the next couple of months. They applied for a liquor license recently for the new space, and according to the New York State Liquor Authority, it’s still pending.
If you’ve never been to the 13th Street spot, you’ve still got a month or so to check it out — and to get a taste of what it’s like, check out this video about absinthe from our sister site South Slope News.
