Brooklyn Nibbles: From Selling Real Estate to Restaurant or Bar

February 12th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Remember the old Fillmore Real Estate office at 486 Fifth Avenue in Park Slope? You know, the one between 11th and 12th Streets that closed down along with a couple of others as the real estate market started to, uh, sink. Well, the place is coming back to a life, per a tip from a very kind GL reader. We’d been by there yesterday and it was still the empty Fillmore office. Today? There’s paper covering the window and a building permit issued two days ago showing that it’s being converted to a restaurant/drinking establishment. There are no clues on the permit as to what kind of place it will be and we couldn’t find any pending liquor license application. If anyone knows, do let us know in the comments section. Oh, wait, we know…it’s going to be a bar called Apocalypse Now that play The Doors’ The End over and over and over and over.

    I’m not sure I get what that means, but I’m a big doors fan.

    Great. Walked by the former Pumpkin’s health food store on 8th Avenue yesterday and saw it too is turning into a bar.
