The Skinny Rebounds After Brief Health Department Closure
The Skinny rode the proverbial bench for just a few days, and is already back open.
The divey holdover from the early aughts – now considered one of the more consistent bad actors in Hell Square – fell to a Department of Health inspection late last week. The city agency shuttered The Skinny last Thursday due to vermin-related issues, according to public record.
However, its time on the sidelines was rather short-lived. The bar reopened a few days ago.
It’s worth noting that the February 22 inspection was the second time in as many months that The Skinny was targeted by the Health Department. A visit on December 26 also yielded 38 violation points, according to city records.
The Skinny opened in 2004. Eight years later, it expanded into the space next door which previously housed Elegant Woolen & Silk.
