The Edge celebrated its 29th year in business Wednesday night by telling patrons that the bar was closing for good at the end of the month.
The owners confirmed that the bar, at 95 E. Third St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue, is closing.
We heard rumors earlier in the week about some landlord issues.
"We'll just say [the landlord] found an opportunity to sue us for a bunch of money that we can't pay," a bar rep told us via text. "It's really disappointing. The bar has been around 29 years as of [Wednesday]. We just celebrated with a Back to the 80s party. A lot of sad people that the bar will no longer be around. It's been a 'living room' for so many people for so many years."
There are no plans at the moment to find a new location.
Public records show that the landlord is Thermald Realty Associates.
