Back in the early days of 2007, Tonic shuttered after nearly a decade of entertaining the community.  Pretty much an eternity in city time.  Since its demise, the onetime bastion of Lower East Side music has remained vacant, nearly forgotten in the deep dark shadows of Blue. Even though it’s languished on the open market for years (Ripco), 107 Norfolk Street is being hawked again, this time via Craigslist.

The 5,000 square-foot, freestanding building is going for a steamy $15,000 per month.  Brokers, of course, are championing it as the perfect space for a gallery, studio, boutique, or gym. But no bar…just yet.  Here’s the listing:

This is a truly amazing space. Formerly a popular bar. Tons of space–and with the high ceilings it feels even bigger than it is. 2,500 sf on the ground floor and 2,200 in the basement. It would make an amazing art gallery or studio, unique retail store or gym. Liquor license is expired and none being issued in CB3 area so bar is out for now. This space is very unique–if you’re looking for this kind of square footage in the LES you should check out this space–asking is under $39/square foot!
