Shannon Pot to face wrecking ball, new dentist office opens

Shannon Pot

Sept. 4, 2013 By Christian Murray

The Shannon Pot, a well known Irish bar that has been part of the Court Square neighborhood for years, is going to be demolished, according to the pub’s manager.

The bar/restaurant, located at 45-06 Davis Street, has been operating without a lease for years, the manager said.  Therefore, it was only a matter of time that the pub would be demolished, he said.

News that the pub was being demolished was first reported this morning in Lost City, a Queens blog. The article, based on a tip from a Lost City reader, said that the pub would be razed in the next few months to make way for a new condo development.

The manager, however, said that he was not aware of such a timeline and was not sure when the pub would be closing.

In other Court Square business news, a new dentistry opened Sept. 3 at 24-24 Jackson Avenue.  The office, called Court Square Dentistry, was established by Ian Mapes DDS. Information on the dentistry can be found at

Mapes also has an office in Brooklyn, which he opened in 2011, called Williamsburg Smile Design.

there is no such thing as a manager at shanon pot you have two owners … they are in court fighting the landlord alike all tenants of the G&M realty tenants residents and commercial .
as of now they are not going anywhere and will be open for new Years celebration .. fact ..


The area has been people friendly for as long as I’ve lived there. (longer than any of you)
What’s not “people-friendly” is turning everything into a condo.


how is this news ?, if 5 Pointz goes then shannon pot goes, space womb goes, the entire city block goes … it s all owned by the same developper
