Who was Wes Joice?
John Wesley "Wes" Joice was the owner of the Greenwich Village's literary hangout, The Lion's Head, which he first opened in 1966 at 59 Christopher Street. A former minor league baseball player, policeman and P.J. Clarke's bartender, the establishment attracted writers and editors who spread the word. Joice filed for bankruptcy in 1994. The The Lion's Head closed two years later, in 1996, due to rising rents.
