Just a few months ago, Swingers Club, the mini-golf/dueling piano hybrid bar at Plaza pulled the plug and relaunched as The Drink. Unfortunately, the new concept apparently failed to turn things around. Last night, operator Anthony Cools announced on Twitter that he is out of the bar business:

And with that, the bar has closed. With Simpatico disappearing in June, this marks the second Plaza bar to shut down since the hotel’s remodel/reopening last September.

The Drink frequently hosted flip cup tournaments and had an hourly shot special. Everyone purchasing the shot of the hour was encouraged to hoist their shot and say, “Sociable” before drinking. It was a tad awkward. Offering bottle service seemed out of place as well. This is The Plaza after all.

No word yet on what is planned for the space.

    A place with jazz downtown would be awesome. Seems like it’d be a good fit for the Plaza.

    How about a sports bar since that beautiful bar near the newly remodeled sports book is always closed…

    Keep it simple, Plaza. Just make it a nice place to stop, get a drink, and listen to some music; jazz or something along those lines.
