The rumors swirling around the social media sites are true. Nectar wine bar is indeed closing its doors for good tomorrow night. We got the official word in our inbox late this afternoon.
Many people are sad to see Harlem’s first wine bar close after only four years. If you recall, Nectar had just scored a coveted sidewalk license last summer. The owners also introduced live entertainment and brunch over the course of the last year to help boost sales.
Unfortunately, the economic downturn and the growth of lower FBD (Frederick Douglass Blvd.) have not been kind to Nectar which was once considered the Queen Bee of the revived boulevard. So, tomorrow night Nectar will make a final toast and bid adieu to their friends and neighbors.
The good news is that its sister establishment, Harlem Vintage will stick around. Continue to support our neighborhood businesses, both new and old.
