Kingpin

I seem to remember Kingpin closing last year (maybe even longer) due to a fire. Was that the case or am I just making things up in my head again? If they did close, are they open again? Thanks.

They did close due to a fire; they are definitely not open again in the same location, and to the best of my knowledge, are not open in a different location.

Kingpin was the kind of place that once it's gone, it won't come back.

Yeah, total dive, always seemed to be operating on the edges of the law... in short, the perfect neighborhood watering hole!   :)

Awesome spot in the early 00's.

I used to hang out there in 2000-2001...it was the place for people into certain drugs and staying up all night


You would get in I want to say before 2 or 3 am, they would lock up and then they stayed open inside all night for those that had got in...an after hours joint

They had a Radiohead set list plastered on a wall ..I think from the surprise 930 show

I left the US mid 2001 and by the time I was back in late 2002 my lifestyle had changed and I stopped going there
