After what felt like decades, Lone Wolf is back and ready to serve up classic brews and drinks. 

Lone Wolf’s original owner shut it down for a few months due to some licensing issues in November 2016, but the staple dive is back and under new management.

The proprietor of Iggy’s Keltic Lounge and Local 138 in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, is more than excited to be Lone Wolf’s new owner, and to be back in the bar’s original spot at 1089 Broadway. “We cleaned up the space took down some walls to open it up and brighten it up for some day drinkers,” he said. “Also, the back yard is cleaned up and ready to go for the summer!”

Ah, another Bushwick patio—always exciting news. 

The owner also wanted to stay true to Lone Wolf’s roots, welcoming some of the old Lone Wolf staff to the new edition.”We have definitely hired bartenders from the neighborhood and surrounding areas. We [also] brought back some of the old Lone Wolf bartenders.”

In addition to an outdoor space and crazy awesome beer + shot specials, Lone Wolf also has an exciting events lineup; the bar will feature dance parties and karaoke nights, hosted by local DJs and entertainers. Check out Lone Wolf’s new and improved Facebook page for more info.

We see Lone Wolf becoming a summer destination for local lovers of beer and dance. See you there!
