Kovacs was one of Detroit’s iconic dive bars that shuttered in a few years ago Detroit’s Delray neighborhood.
According to one source, the space at 6986 West Jefferson operated as a hotel and saloon since 1896 and the bar harkens from 1936.
The last operators were Bob and Delores Evans and the contents of the bar – featured in two movies,”Hoffa” and “Vanishing on 7th Street” – are being liquidated in a cash-only estate sale today and Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.
We are liquidating the contents of a 100 year old bar in DelRay. All contents must go – even the antique Art Deco bar counter and back cabinets. Some items include kitchen appliances & accessories (coolers, ice maker, stove, etc.), tables, chairs, tablecloths, washer/dryer and even a player piano.
There are other items not pictured, like vintage solid wood doors and a solid wood workbench.
Here are some pictures that are sure to bring back among the Dive Bar connoisseurs among us.
