Montauk’s iconic Memory Motel is partnering with NYC and East Hamptons’ party hot spot Common Ground for an East Village popup bar now through New Year’s Eve. The two-level bar is located on the corner of 13th Street and 3rd Avenue. The bar will be open Thursday – Monday, now through December 31st.
Paying homage to its original location in Montauk, the space has been transformed to create the rowdy beachside dive bar feel that resembles the space that served as inspiration for the Rolling Stones hit song “Memory Motel.” Anyone who’s partied at the original Montauk spot will find familiar DJs and staff, in addition to its staple drinks served in plastic cups (after 9PM), drinks without fruit (don’t ask for a lime!), and a painting of the iconic Montauk Memory Motel on the side of the building. This popup will give NYC residents and visitors a taste of Montauk fun during the New York winter.
The bar menu will feature classic bar snacks like nachos, wings, burgers and “Weenieville” hot dogs. For game days and events, guests can order food towers. Kicking off each weekend, bargoers can enjoy Thursday trivia and Thursday night football and end their weekend with Memory Mondays.
“I think it’s the perfect time for Memory Motel to enter NYC,” said Brian Kenny, owner of Memory Motel. “People are excited and ready to have high energy fun without having to spend stupid money on bottle service they don’t have. I’m looking forward to making some new friends, and seeing some familiar Montauk faces. Memory Monday industry night is going to be insane – I can’t wait!”
“It’s been a long time coming for Memory Motel to open its doors in NYC so that we don’t have to wait all year round for those (not so memorable) Memory Motel nights,” said Chris Reda.
“Your new favorite dive bar is open for business. NO Reservations. NO Fuss. NO Fancy Door Lines. Just a cover and a good time. Meet us at the Memory Motel.”
