The Wild Turkey, a Sunnyside bar/restaurant located at 39-35 47th Avenue, has closed after being in business for about two years.
The bar/restaurant was owned by Rae Arora, a Flushing real estate developer, who bought the bar with a business partner in April 2012.
At the time, Arora said: “Everyone talks about Skillman Avenue as the place, but I think this section of Sunnyside is the next hotspot. There is a lot of potential here.”
The bar/restaurant’s best known feature was its large patio area in the back. Arora held many summer events in that patio.
Tomorrow, there will be an auction at the bar/restaurant, with many of its items being auction off.
The bar, which was popular among this neighborhood’s gay community, had been listed for sale in September for $110,000
