Sports bar coming to the former Barleycorn space

A sports bar is coming to the former Barleycorn space at 23 Park Place — Brickyard Craft Kitchen — which will have seating for 112 plus another 36 at the bar.

They did not call themselves a sports bar, but they plan to have 40(!) TVs so that was the tip-off. It’s a big space — 6000 square feet going through the block to Murray.

The operator, Carlos Rosario, already has a liquor license for a bar in Chelsea, in Community Board 4, that opened in 2018. He also has a grocery in Brooklyn that he’s had for 20 years. His lawyer called him a “seasoned operator” who’s been vetted by CB4.

He agreed to the hours of noon to midnight on the weekends, with noon to 10p on Sundays.

Murray Street residents asked via a letter to the committee that the Murray Street entrance not be used for groups and that it close earlier — at 9p — and also that the garbage go out on the Park Place side. Rosario was fine with those plans.

Barleycorn closed in May 2019, after the Tent & Trails building collapse in December 2018; the vacate order was still on their building when they threw in the towel.



  1. Can a sports bar close at midnight on weekends? You’d never see the end of west coast games.

  2. What a joke this community board is.
