And now it can all be yours....from Craiglist via the Apiary:

This East Village bar is just two avenues from the NYU Dorms in the heart of the East Village is a fully equpped/turn-key operation with Full Liquor Licene. I am exclusively representing the owner of this bar as a real estate professional in Manhattan. This bar is a money maker. The owner has other business that he is involved with and would like to get out of this situation. The place gets packed, and has a history in the area that goes back to the 90's. If you ever wanted a bar, or currently operate bars this is a perfect opportunity to continue your success or start now.

FIXTURE FEE is $300K A price that is negociable! Rent is $15K Per Month

Actual listing with pictures here. Should be cheaper than the Knitting Factory.
