Thor Equities purchased the building they are located in and when their lease expired, increased their rent by $14,000 to a total of $60,000 a month. This iconic #bar was known for selling $3 cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon #beer and encouraging women to get up on the bar and dance with a bartender and remove their bras and hang them on the wall. The owner, Michelle Dell, estimated that they 16,000 bras were removed from the walls of the #divebar since they first opened in 1992. The bras and taxidermy on display have been catalogued in case they find a new location in #NYC to re-open, but she is not hopeful.
