Emmonn’s In Brooklyn, the Irish pub and restaurant at 174 Montague Street that has served the community for 17 years, will be closing its doors permanently on June 17. A manager on duty told BHB that the owner of the building is converting the space into condos.
The Brooklyn Eagle is also reporting the story Saturday here, which quotes Eamonn’s GM Heloise Traynor confirming that landlord Robar Inc. sold the building and its air rights to a developer, who plans to turn it into condos. Eamonn’s shares the two-story building at 172-174 Montague St., between Clinton and Court streets, with Hallmark.
“It’s the end of an era. We’re very sad for our whole extended family here,” Traynor told the Eagle. “It’s just a shame all the mom-and-pop shops are getting pushed out. It’s impossible to keep up with these rents, absolutely impossible; whoever they get in here is going to be a chain store.”
