Two Lark Street Bars Are Closing This Weekend

Two Lark Street Bars Are Closing This Weekend
Posted October 24th, 2013 @ 10:10pm

Say goodbye to DeJohn's and Legends on Lark - they're closing their doors as of Sunday. 

Owner John DeJohn tells Steve Barnes of the Times Union that a decline in business is to blame, which he places in part on the Lark Street neighborhood organizations. Part of the problem, he says, is that DeJohn's and Legends are forced to close at 2am, while other bars in the area are allowed to stay open until 4. 

DeJohn owns the buildings that house Legends and DeJohn's, but doesn't have any clear plans on what to do with them after they close. His other restaurants: Justin's, Legends on Pearl, and DeJohn's Ship Pub will stay open.
