Sorry if this is in the wrong forum - mods please move it to the right category as required.

A stubborn app has a menu bar icon that is frankly unnecessary and I'm a bit OCD about what's on there.... I keep the app open as it's a messaging app (LINE app) but hate the green colour of the menu bar notification and am wondering how I can get this darn thing off?

There is no setting in the preferences section to turn off the menu bar icon, nor does CMD+drag work (doing so brings up a cannot remove sign).

Any thoughts? Thx!

Have you contacted the developer of the app? The app will control of what it displays.

Thanks @Weaselboy , this is what I was looking for. Cheers.

edit: appears a bit buggy on Sierra but it's the best solution I can find thus far. Sometimes the bar gets pixelated a bit... oh well, minor inconveniences.

I've been using it on Sierra since the Sierra release and I don't see that at all here. You might check with the developer and see if they have any ideas.
