Hop Sing Laundromat in Chinatown has been closed since mid-March, a fate shared by countless other bars that serve little to no food and are not set up for takeout.
But the owner, who goes simply by Lê, wants to keep a hand in the scene.
The drinks, which will be ordered at the door, will be priced at $10 — easily $5 less than the norm. “I’m not trying to make money on this,” Lê said. “I’m doing this as a matter of convenience.”
