What's in a name?

The origin of the term ‘86’ has a rich history in American pop culture. The term was adopted by the restaurant industry among workers in the 1930s, where 86 meant, “we’re all out of it”.

Our favorite bit of folklore? The 86 Bedford Street theory.

Rumor has it that during prohibition the police would call the bartender at Chumley’s (located at 86 Bedford Street in the West Village) and tell them to “86” their customers, ushering patrons out the 86 Bedford Street Door while the police would enter on Pamela Court.

Take repairs off the menu. 86 Repairs.
