The nightlife woes of 141 Chrystie Street continue.

Ever since the former law office was converted into a two-story nightclub three years ago, several concepts passed through the doors. All attempts have thus far been futile – Mystique, Chrystie 141, Inga, Bobby’s … and now Red Heels.

A year after its debut, we’ve been noticing a torrent of real estate listings for the business on Craigslist. The owners are asking for an astronomical $1.2 million in key money, plus $14,518 in monthly rent. Six years remain on the lease.

Seems like a shit deal. Not sure what operator would want to step in here…

The Red Heels “upscale sports bar” concept arrived on Chrystie Street in August 2013. On any given afternoon you can see patrons through the open windows on the second floor. The space is stocked with at least a half-dozen flat-screen televisions and waitresses serving libations in red heels.
