Times Square Is Losing It’s Longtime Eateries as Langan’s Closes

Times Square Is Losing It’s Longtime Eateries as Langan’s Closes


Langan’s , the nearly 25-year-old Irish pub in Times Square, will close on January 18th after the landlord A&R Kalimian raised the rent from $16,000 to $53,000 a month. Located at 150 W. 47th St, the co-owner Des O’Brien, owner of  Pig ‘N’ Whistle and other Midtown bars stated “despite several counter offers from him and his partners, the landlord would not budge.”  According to the New York Post , Langan’s customers included Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin, Kathleen Turner and John McCain as well as being the unofficial Post hangout.

Albert Kalimian is the principal of A&R Kalimian, a privately-held real estate investment, construction, and property management firm. Kalimian also serves as deputy mayor, trustee, and police commissioner for the Village of Matinecock, on Long Island, and sits on the board of directors of The American Red Cross in Nassau County.

This will make the second major restaurant closing. Guy’s American Kitchen & Tavern closed on December 31, for reasons unknown. In February, 10-year-old Asian nightclub Circle will also close, due to a rent increase.
