No Malice Palace remains closed for now after the death of its owner

An EVG reader shared this... No Malice Palace, the bar on Third Street just west of Avenue B, remains closed...

It turns out that bar owner Phil Sherman died right before Thanksgiving 2016...

A note by the door and on the bar's Facebook page (on Jan. 12) note they will reopen "as soon as all legal formalities are completed and ownership is transferred."

The building, No. 197, hit the sales market in March 2016 for $7.5 million. According to public records, it sold to Northstar Properties last summer for $6.3 million. The seller is listed as an LLC c/o Simon Baron Development Group.

According to the original listing, No Malice Palace has a lease through December 2019. The bar opened in 1999.

That place has been a fucking horroshow the past few years, I don't know why they are clinging to it after Phil's death. All it does is bring in loud, moronic and violent morons by flyering events on weekends. It is not even allowed to be anything but a restaurant as per its liquor license!

They won't be reopening. Sister was bought out- apartments are being gutted.
