Mo Pitkins is for sale, and will probably close

Mo Pitkins

The NY Post reports,

The Avenue A building is owned and occupied by the Hartman family – artists and entrepreneurs best known for their chain of funky Two Boots pizzerias in Manhattan and Brooklyn. But while the pizzerias are thriving, business apparently hasn’t been all that great at Mo’s.

So, 2½ years after the family did a gut renovation on the space, they’ve tapped Walker & Malloy uber-brokers Alex Picken and Rafe Evans to sell the building and its contents. The price is $5.5 million.

Picken and Evans, who confirmed the sale offering to us, say the property can be delivered vacant. A duplex penthouse apartment and a coveted liquor license are included.

Though not quite a historic location, I think Mo Pitkins does a good job at keeping the spirit of the East Village alive – entertainment-wise anyway. Like Fez, I’ll be sad to see it go, and I’m sure the many music, comedy & burlesque performers who play there on a regular basis will feel the same way. I don’t even want to think about the sterile & fancy new establishment that might take its place.
