On a recent Cobble Hill NYC bar crawl, we were dismayed to learn that Downtown Bar & Grill at 160 Court Street in Brooklyn had closed for business. We’ve pub crawled to Downtown numerous times and wrote about the spot in early 2012. One source indicated that the bar’s rent had been raised too high to continue operating in that location. No word if Downtown will re-open in another location. If you have any additional information the status of Downtown, please share in the comment space below.
