After six years on Bedford Avenue, Williamsburg, dance spot Savalas will close at the end of this week. There goes your next birthday party, kids! Its Facebook page doesn’t give a reason, but an update posted yesterday says “The end is near. Come get a lethal dose of Savalas before we shut our doors. T-minus 6 days.” The bar has changed its profile photo to text: “THE SONG ‘THE FINAL COUNTDOWN’ IS NOW PLAYING IN YOUR HEAD.” Back in September, a bar employee sent an e-mail to DJs banning hip-hop, and explained, “the crowd at Savalas has been changing recently. Our old regulars are coming around less, drug dealers, meat heads, dare I say *gasp* New Jersey kids are coming around more.” New Jersey kids are hereby redirected to the Woods, owned by the same team.
