If you’ve spent any amount of time in Rice Village, you’ve likely walked (or stumbled) your way into Bronx Bar, a dive bar slash nightclub popular with college students and other hard-partying booze enthusiasts.

Unfortunately, you’ll have to do your stumbling at another establishment after this weekend, as the perpetually packed watering hole plans to close its doors this weekend.

A post on Bronx Bar’s Facebook page confirms the closure:

Opened in 1998, Bronx Bar has survived at least one closure. In 2015, the location at 4520 Washington Avenue was shuttered and turned into Fire Station #11, a farm-to-table pizzeria that has also since closed.

Bronx Bar’s last night will be Saturday, which means that you’ll need to stop by this weekend to say your final goodbyes.
