UPDATE: I just heard from the owner, who informed me that the listing is incorrect and was only intended to help sell franchises, and that the Tea Lounge is in fact NOT for sale.
The Tea Lounge, the cafe that's been on Union Street between 6th and 7th Avenues for more than 13 years, is apparently up for sale. Many thanks to a tipster for directing me to this listing (also found below; click for a larger version), where the 3,900 square foot space, with 8 1/2 years left on its contract, is listed for $9,750 per month.
"Highly successful, long running, internet cafe and bar with full liquor license," the somewhat lo-fi listing reads. "Apprx 3900 sqft at prime location."
Tea Lounge isn't just a popular hangout for people who work from home as well as those with children in tow, it also recently opened up a location in Kuwait as part of an agressive franchising campaign. A Williamsburg location has also apparently been in the works for some time now, but has yet to come to fruition.
I reached out to the owners about the reasons behind the sale and what their future plans are, and will update if I hear back.
