After having been here since 1939, as is too often the case these days, a rent increase by the landlord forced the Lenox Lounge to close. The owner tried to move to a new location and a local restaurateur wanted to open in this one and keep the art deco decor (which had been restored in 2000). Tragically, neither of those things happened. This building was demolished in May 2017.
