Graydon Carter, Vanity Fair editor and co-owner of über-scene-y West Village eatery The Waverly Inn, is buying the Monkey Bar. After a redesign earlier this year, the restaurant faltered.

Veselka is growing into the space next door to their Ninth street headquarters. Alas, this means that beloved mural at the the 24-hour diner will have to go.
