Former site of Barramundi

Ludlow Street, L.E.S.

Back in the mid-90's, Barramundi was a nice little bar some friends of mine and I used to quite like and visit often. A little further down the road from Maxx Fish et al., Barramundi was cooler, darker, better designed and had an overall cool aura to it. I believe they also claimed to serve Absynthe (I usually opted for the Singha instead). I had no idea it was gone -- not just gone, but demolished -- until today. Sad. Yeah, there's a new location, but it won't be the same.
