And there's currently a listing for the space in the co-op building.
Ground and first floor are zoned commercial, third and fourth floors are zone Residential
Ground floor Commercial Store, presently used as a music studio, 12ft ceilings. Suitable for all kinds of legal retail use

Tu Casa has been around since 1972. A very lengthy list of musicians have played here through the years... including Butch Morris, Black Flag, the Bush Tetras, Dee Dee Ramone, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs... (Find more names here.)
At this time, it's unclear if Mario is moving Tu Casa to a new space in Brooklyn ... or closing altogether.
