Legis. Sarah Anker (D, Mt. Sinai) confirmed in a statement Monday morning that the controversial Oxygen Bar in Rocky Point has been permantly closed.
The bar, which had caused controversy in the past which came to a boiling point with a back in early May. The bar was due to an expired permit, and according to Anker, who spoke with State Liquor Authority Commissioner Noreen Healey, it will be permanently shut down after the owners surrendered their liquor license and turned in their lease to the landlord of the property over the weekend.
"We can now say that the Oxygen Bar is permanently closed," Anker said. "Going forward, I hope to work with the property owner in finding a suitable tenant for this location and ensuring the Rocky Point community that no nuisance occupant sets up shop here.”
