Blue Bottle Coffee Terminates Lower East Side Cafe

Posted on: June 2nd, 2021 at 5:06 am by

After a four-year tenure, Blue Bottle Coffee is no longer slinging java on the Lower East Side.

Several readers reached out to say that the Clinton Street outpost, which debuted here back in March 2017, closed down for good on Sunday. Rumors of its demise date back further into the pandemic, though. We had been hearing late last year that the coffee shop might not emerge from the sidelines.

This news is further confirmed online, as the location has been removed from blue bottle’s website and google has it marked as permanently closed.

As we’ve noted for years, this particular address is one of the most notorious spaces on the Lower East Side. Ever since 71 Clinton Fresh Foods ended its seven-year tenure in 2006, nothing of substance really sticks in this spot. Neither on the Rivington nor Clinton Street sides. The previous occupant – San Marzano Pizzafell victim to a burst water pipe seven years ago and fled the area.
