The Shannon Pot, a well known Irish bar that has been part of the Court Square neighborhood for years, has closed its doors and plans to re-open nearby.
The bar/restaurant, located on the corner of Jackson Avenue and Davis Street, was forced to close as the building is set to be demolished along with a number of neighboring warehouses. The warehouses include the 5 Pointz graffiti building.
The demolition will make way for two high-rise residential towers built by Jerry Wolkoff of G&M Realty.
The Shannon Pot closed Friday, and is expected to reopen at 21-59 44th Drive– the former location of La Familia Bar & Restaurant– in coming weeks. The bar is currently seeking to transfer its liquor license to that location.
