Building that houses Odessa Cafe and Bar for sale on Avenue A

Dave on 7th heard the rumor that the building that houses the Odessa Cafe and Bar at 117 Avenue A is for sale... sure enough, a sign has just arrived...



...this is the (old) cafe/diner space... the newer diner is next door at 119...



Unfortunately, we don't have much information about this listing. The HPNY site is under construction. An Odessa source tells EVG contributor Shawn Chittle that the owner lives in Arizona, and is asking in the $3 million neighborhood for the property. The landlord offered to sell the building to the Odessa proprietors, who own 119 Avenue A as well. They are passing on the sale for now.

The Odessa Cafe currently has three years left on its lease.

Oh no! I hope this old Odessa doesn't disappear. When I was in high school my friends and I used to hang out here often. Smoking in the back booth, drinking vodka sodas, ahh we felt so mature. I could always come here and find some friend from school. I cherish that memory every time I walk by...

The Old Odessa really has a charm of it's own.

I called the number on the sign this morning after seeing this post to inquire about the sale of the building. I have been looking to purchase in the area in this product type. I was told that it unequivocally not for sale. I think you might have gotten false information.
