The expansive downtown craft-cocktail bar Vessel has closed. Friday night was its swan song. On his Facebook page Sunday owner Jim Romdall announced, "It's my sad duty to report that Vessel is no longer open. It hurts to pour yourself into something and have it be successful, only to have it taken away beyond your control," but no other details have been given.
Vessel opened last August after moving from its original closet-sized home next to the 5th Avenue Theatre. No word if Romdall plans to reinstate it once again in the future, but here's hoping.
