Historic Harlem Landmark to Shut Down

Legendary Jazz Landmark Lenox Lounge will shut its doors forever New Year’s Eve, says longtime owner Alvin Reed.  The cool Art Deco cabaret has been open since 1942 and has hosted a Who’s Who of  musical icons such as Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Billie Holiday.

Reed who’s owned the bar since 1988, says the exceedingly high rent –$20,000, double what he has been paying–has forced him to give up the lease.

Richard Notar, a managing partner at Nobu Restaurants is set to take over the space after the new year. Notar told The New York Times he hopes to keep the bar as “an old watering hole” with live music, but it’s unclear if he will work out a deal with Reed  to continue using the Lenox Lounge name.
