Azul Bistro on Suffolk Street Put Up for Sale

Posted on: November 20th, 2012 at 6:09 am by

Should we sing the blues for Azul Bistro? The under-the-radar Argentinian bistro is seemingly ending its eleven-year run at the northwest corner of Suffolk and Stanton Streets. Real estate research reveals a handful of sale listings for the property. Indeed, the popular haunt was recently listed as a “prime” turnkey opportunity via Craigslist.

Azul first opened at 152 Suffolk Street shortly after 9/11, in December 2001. The neighborhood has changed beyond recognition in the ensuing period, yet here it remained.

For an unspecified amount in key money, plus $8,200 rent, prospective investors will receive a fully-functional 1,000 square-foot restaurant. Five years remain on the lease with the likely option to renew for another ten.
