The former Central Bar being converted to office use on 9th Street

Renovations continue in the retail space at 109 E. Ninth St. between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue. 

According to the posted work permits, workers are converting the former Central Bar space to "office occupancy" ...
The Central Bar, the bi-level sports bar-lounge, closed this past March after nearly 20 years in business. In a letter to patrons, the bar owners noted: "Our landlord has sold the building, and the new owners will not be keeping us as tenants."

The building changed hands for $3.35 million. No word on what might be happening to 109's 13 residential units.

It seems to be a rarity for a bar/restaurant — or any previously licensed address — to be converted into an office or other business (though it does happen).
