On July 10th, the What’sUpNewp Crew brought you the news that the Owners Of Midtown Oyster Bar Have Purchased Perry Mill Tavern.

What’sUpNewp has learned that Perry Mill Tavern will officially close on Thursday, September 10th. It is currently unknown when the new owners expect to reopen the restaurant and bar at 337 Thames Street.

For those who frequented the Perry Mill Tavern (the old Rhino Bar) often, they may have become a member of the Jameson Club. Members that joined the exclusive Jameson Club chose a private bottle of original or high mark Jameson whiskey, and received a number. It’s very much like Benjamin’s Grand Marnier Club.

Members who still have a bottle of Jameson at Perry Mill Tavern have until end of business on Thursday, September 10th to enjoy their bottle at Perry Mill Tavern. No, you can’t take the bottle with you.

If you don’t enjoy the bottle, you lose it. No refunds will be given.

Perry Mill Tavern will be open until 1am on September 9th and from 1pm until 1am on September 10th.
