Tribeca to close January 1

Say it ain't so!

Due to pressure from the liquor board and the fire marshal, Tribeca Bistro & Bar (1588 Granville) is scheduled to close its doors for good on January 1, 2012.

The capacity limitations put on the bar have made it difficult to stay afloat and the city will lose yet another venue in the new year.

When Tribeca first opened, the capacity was set at 192. That has since been reduced to 120. "There was a point in the summer the capacity was 60 people," says Loukas Crowther (The Coast's production manager), who DJs regularly at the bar. Having essentially cut a third of the bar's business, Nova Scotia's draconian liquor laws claim another great venue.

Goodbye, Tribeca. We will miss you.
