Bondi Road For Sale; “LES Liquor License = License to Make Money”

Bondi Road, 153 Rivington Street.

Looks like it could be the end of the road for Aussie fish and chips (and boozie brunch) spot, Bondi Road.  An online listing for the restaurant at 153 Rivington reads, “bar with liquor license for sale… perfect LES block next to Schiller’s (a block away actually)… LES liquor license = license to make money.”

In the past year, Community Board 3 has tried to dispel the notion that a liquor license can be sold.  Although each applicant must apply individually to the State Liquor Authority, a previously existing license is seen by bar owners as an asset.   This listing makes that crystal clear.

It doesn’t indicate how much is being asked for the business.   The broker (Misrahi) is asking $12,500/month for the 1400 square foot space.
