We’ve been hearing multiple, though unsubstantiated, reports from around the Internet that Studio Square, the beer garden, bar and party spot on 36th Street, has closed.

The 30,000 square-foot space is known for throwing large parties and events of all kinds, and for drawing in people from Queens and beyond. But it has drawn mixed reactions from people who live nearby. Some enjoy its energy and events, while others have complained about the noise and crowds.

While some people seem to believe the space is closed for good, others seem under the impression that it’s only closed for the winter season.

Though the rumors are swirling, we were unable to reach Studio Square’s owners for comment, although their phone number is still active, with a Studio Square-branded voicemail recording. We’re going to attempt to get ahold of them again, and we’ll keep you posted! If you’ve heard anything, let us know!

FWIW, we just had our son’s birthday party there this past Saturday afternoon, so it was definitely open then. And we had a great time – the big open indoor space was perfect, party package was reasonable, and management was easy to deal with. I interacted with two GMs and neither mentioned anything about closing (not that they necessarily would). The place is only open Thursday-Sunday’s right now so no surprise if no one is answering the phone today.

I’m confused, has anyone tried to go? Did someone go over the weekend and they weren’t open. If a Facebook page is the only evidence wouldn’t you wait until you could send someone to the space before printing? This seems flimsy.

We’ve spoken to people familiar with the establishment and they’ve confirmed Sunday was their last day. We’ve also gotten MANY emails to this effect from patrons and staff, but we can’t reach the owners to confirm the story. But I don’t ask my writers to write up anything I’m not sure of. -Mackenzi

This place used to be fun but has changed. Every time friends and I want to go here, they set a cover charge to get into the place for UFC fight nights, so we go to another bar. Last time, my boyfriend and I went to meet friends and were asked to pay a $30 cover charge, even though our friends were already inside having not paid a cover. It was like all of a sudden at 7 pm you had to pay a cover. I’m sure it would be more fun if there wasn’t a cover charge.

It has never closed for “the season” in the past. They have heaters outside and the indoor area is large.
