Rafters has officially closed to make way for yet another pot facility. I believe this has been know for a while, but still, such a shame. Their buffalo chicken is far superior to the Hangar and I prefer their laid back atmosphere to the Hangar any day. Looks like I'll have to find another spot. RIP Rafters.

Yep, this has been known for years. Sad to see it go.

The $7.95 pitchers of Labatts Blue will be missed.

Preferring Rafters to The Hangar might be the craziest thing ever posted on this board.

Sure, when the Hangar was at the old location.

The current version of the Hangar is horrendous. Terrible atmosphere, way too loud, and I'll hold my stance that the buffalo chicken is (was) much better at Rafters. Hangar has some good sauces, but not a good buffalo chicken spot. It is an indisputable fact that this is my opinion.

Not totally related, but the owner of the delivery portion of the Hangar (Wings Over) is in some hot water for underpaying his delivery drivers: https://www.gazettenet.com/Owner-of-Win ... s-26081174

Yes. The owners of The Pub and Rafters will close The Pub to make way for a new restaurant. It’s called Savanna’s and it will be located in that new development south of the Hangar. I hear Savanna’s will cater to customers who’d prefer Judie’s or Bistro 63.

The Pub closes and all the NY/NJ students weep.
