OK, as far as I know this is the status of the bars in Washington Square (they’re listed in order, if entering from Suk Road and walking clockwise around the square).

  • Silver Dollar CLOSED
  • Texas Lone Star CLOSED
  • The Cats Meow CLOSED
  • Wild Country CLOSED
  • Bourbon Street CLOSED
  • 52 Bar
  • The Prince of Wales
  • Hare & Hound
  • New Square One Pub (Taffy’s Hairy Pie Club)
  • Dennys Corner Bar
  • The Puss-Inn Pub
  • Cheers Pub
  • Happy Pub
  • The Sportsman Bar & Restaurant
  • Dubliner

Can anyone update the above?

PS  A mate of mine tells me that he and some of the other WS regulars have been drinking in the Easy Bar (next to the Hare & Hound) but I’m not aware of this bar.  :dunno:  Anyone know it?

Even the lone stars they get lonesome.
Lonesome for a lone star man like me."

you should add the reasons for closing if they are known!

AFAIK they'll all be closing for the same reason, i.e., non renewal of leases.

Easy Bar would be probably open now about 2 years - some of the regular girls from Silver Dollar opened it.

The Texas Lone Staar closed because the owner's widow got tired of running it. I didn't hear anything about a lease problem. After George died, most of the regulars didn't come by as often and business went down the tubes. But Silver Dollar was doing well, as far as I know. Lease problems sounds like the most logical reason. Maybe the others saw the writing on the wall. :dunno:

Where exactly is it located as I didn't see it in Dec 2009 when I took pics of all the bars.

A few down from Hair and Hound towards Suk 20.

I think the site of the old Pink Massage Parlour.

2009 wouldn't have been open.
