Brooklyn Night Bazaar is closing its Greenpoint location before the end of November, with owners citing a frustrating inability to come to terms with their landlord over a new lease agreement.

“I guess this is what you get when you keep convincing yourself that signing short term leases are a good idea. We were naive enough to actually (foolishly) think that this time would be different, this time the landlords would be reasonable, this time they’d work with us...but nope, surprise!” read a statement released by owner Belvy Klein.

Klein and partner Aaron Bourdo opened the most recent Kings County incarnation of their popular events venue at the old Polonaise Terrace Polish banquet hall at 150 Greenpoint Avenue in 2016, offering three floors of fun and entertainment that included karaoke, ping pong, mini golf, an arcade, and a 400-person live music and events venue on the second level.

But Brooklyn Night Bazaar has struggled to maintain its lease in the past, and a former landlord kicked Klein and Bourdo out of a 23,000-sqare foot warehouse on Banker Street to make way for a luxury car company in 2015.

In announcing the sad news, Klein promised a “killer run” of shows and events through Nov. 30, and said the 150 Greenpoint Avenue venue would host a burger pop-up for the last eight weeks of the Bazaar’s existence.

And the entrepreneurs are still pursuing plans to open a restaurant in nearby McCarren Park sometime in the coming years.
