‘Stillwater Bar’ Falls Prey to Rent Hike After 12 Years on 4th Street
Stillwater Bar has gone still. Last call was last night.
Ownership just shuttered the no-frills neighborhood watering hole at 78 East 4th Street. It was apparently a swift turn of events that led to the downfall. A Stillwater regular tells us that the landlord reportedly doubled the rent, and that negotiations to stay on East 4th fell apart last week.
There has been a bar at this location for the last quarter-century. Before Stillwater took over back in 2006, this was a popular locals haunt called simply, East 4th Street Bar.
It’ll probably become another nightspot in no time.
