Beloved dive bar Subway Inn has been battling its landlords over its longstanding UES space since the summer, having managed to eke out extra time following its official August 20th eviction date. Sadly, it appears Subway Inn will be leaving 60th Street and Lexington Ave soon, but fear not, fans of cheap booze—the bar will be moving only two avenue blocks eastward, and the owners promise they'll be making the new place an EXACT replication of the old stalwart. Who wants to pee on the floor first???

Jeremiah's Vanishing New York reported the move today, after spotting the announcement on the bar's Facebook page. According to the owners, the bar will shutter the current location on December 2nd, whereupon they'll begin relocating to 60th and Second Avenue. And they plan to recreate the old scene so thoroughly, your whiskey brain might not even realize the bar's moved at all:

On December 2nd, 2014-- the Subway Inn will close at its current location on 60th and Lexington Ave. to begin its relocation and REPLICATION (EXACTLY AS IT IS NOW) less than 2 blocks away on the same side of the street --at 60th and Second Avenue. Our move and REPLICATION is expected to take approximately 10 weeks to complete.

We had requested to remain in our current home til the end of the year so that none of our family members or employees would be without a job over the holiday season. Unfortunately, the landlord denied or plea.

We are excited about this development and have put the right team in place to make certain that every piece of furniture, including our famous neon signs, the current bar, every bar stool, even the original bar booths—(that Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio sat in) will make their way a stone’s throw down 60th Street and be set back up exactly as you see it today.

And, it won’t just be the contents that will be the same. The space will look exactly the same. Colors, floor and all! In fact, our replication architect is hard at work making sure our new home will be nearly identical. Also, our prices will not change.

Hooray for Subway Inn! Here's to many future nights of stumbling down 60th Street.
