At the time, Steve Cuozzo noted that the Morrison was on a month-to-month lease... apparently the Morrison folks have decided to leave... as the sign on the door shows...the space was almost empty, save a few framed photos waiting to be boxed up...
So what's next? Something fancy, for sure!
Per Cuozzo in March:
The 3300-square foot space at 313 Bowery now occupied by the Morrison Hotel music-photo gallery — named for the famous Doors album and a spiritual successor to the CBGB gallery that was adjacent to the club — has been put on the market by Elliott Azrak's The Max's Kansas City Co., which netleases the property's retail space from the Bowery Residence Committee.
"The netlease holders are looking for not just any tenant, but one who can leverage the history of the block and the unique Bowery demographic," one source said.
That could mean a restaurant/lounge — or another store similar to John Varvatos.
The secret club Extra Place by Max's Kansas City is also part of the deal.

The Morrison Hotel SoHo NYC Gallery remains open on Prince Street. We reached out to the Morrison folks for comment/confirmation, and are awaiting word from them...
