“Handshake” deal reached to keep Coogan’s open | Manhattan Times

It won’t be last call after all.

A handshake agreement has been reached between Coogan’s Restaurant and its landlord, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, to keep the iconic Washington Heights pub open.

The deal was reported on social media by Congressman Adriano Espaillat, who had organized a rally for January 14 to help save the restaurant.

Around 6:30 p.m. on Friday evening, Espaillat tweeted: “Coogans is here to stay! Proud to be a small part of the handshake agreement between Columbia-Presbyterian & @CoogansNYC alongside many other Coogan’s fans, @galeabrewer @Vegalteno! Stay tuned!”

More information on the deal has not yet been released.
