‘Sunita Bar’ on Norfolk Street is Not for Sale [Updated]
[Updated Below] On the block for the last fifteen years, Sunita Bar on Norfolk Street has been featured in several real estate listings circulating online.
The week-old listing posted to Craigslist advertises the business at 106 Norfolk Street for sale.
However, the owner of Sunita tells us that this listing is bogus. “This is not correct information. I’ve been here for 15 years and I hope to stay for at least another 10 years.”
To own and operate the 414 square-foot Sunita will apparently cost $400K key fee, plus an additional monthly dole of $7,000. The broker-babble promises an easy transfer of an “unblemished 4am liquor license with no community board stipulation.” (The fact that brokers are now publishing this in listings is indicative of potential trepidation among entrepreneurs to enter the scene.) And of course, name-checking the elephant in the room, so to speak. The larger effect of Essex Crossing on pretty much everything.
