The Shannon Pot Says Goodbye

shannon-pot

After rumors of closing, The Shannon Pot’s demise is now official. DNAinfo reports that the Long Island City bar shuttered last Friday to make way for the 5Pointz condo towers. The owners, who have been on the corner of Davis Street and Jackson Avenue for 14 years, plan to reopen the bar in the coming weeks at 21-59 44th Drive, off of 21st Street.

Developers Jerry and David Wolkoff expect to demolish the existing buildings in the area (which, of course, includes 5Pointz) this February. Development plans call for luxury condo units, artist and gallery space, a public park, retail, and parking.
