1 Pike Bar Calls it Quits After a Year
It appears the namesake 1 Pike Cafe and Bar is a goner; the space has been dark for the last week. This closure follows after some recent neighborhood chatter indicating the end of the road.
Phone calls to the establishment also go unanswered.
1 Pike opened at this address (corner of Division Street) back in June 2017. Starting first as a coffee shop, then morphing into a wine bar. Throughout its tenure, the establishment struggled to pack the house. Especially given the over-abundance of similar options within a couple blocks.
As previously noted, the Asian Americans for Equality (AAFE) advocacy group chose 1 Pike to occupy the new storefront carved out of their “Housing and Community Services” building. The community organization downsized its footprint in the ground level, and instead decided to convert the new space to a “wet” use. (Lost office space was relocated across the street to 2 Allen.)
Given the buildout of this space, it seems the only suitors will be of the bar-restaurant variety.
