The Blind Pig wraps up 13 years on 14th Street
The Blind Pig, the sports bar/pub (home to Arsenal supporters in the English Premier League), closed after service Saturday night at 233 E. 14th St.
As previously reported, the owners of the 13-year-old Blind Pig were hit with an untenable rent increase.
There's a Loopnet listing for the space between Second Avenue and Third Avenue. The asking rent is $300,000 annually — $25k per month.
The closing festivities Saturday night included a set by the house band "previously called A Buncha Guys, now called: F*ck the L*ndl*rd," per the Facebook invite.
Public records list the landlord as the Berliza Corp.
