Boxers NYC, America’s gay sports bar, is set to open its newest location at 3820 Broadway in Washington Heights.
Richard Kave, Executive Managing Director, and Barclay Smyly, Associate, of Lee & Associates NYC negotiated a 15-year, 2,400 s/f lease on the ground floor of the building. The space also includes a full basement.
“Working with Boxers NYC has been a rewarding and enlightening experience,” explained Kave, who represented the tenant.
“The owners, Bob Fluet and Rob Hynds, are true professionals who understand the needs of their clientele and pay attention to the smallest of details. Barclay and I look forward to representing them as they continue their expansion.”
With locations in Chelsea, Hell’s Kitchen, and the Upper East Side featuring pool tables, outdoor terraces, brick oven pizza, beer on tap, and plenty of flat screens, Boxers NYC is the premier location for the ultimate sports viewing experience, regardless of your orientation.
Boxers NYC is often a place for gay sports leagues to meet up or hang out with fellow fans.
The renaissance in Washington Heights is naturally attracting a large gay and lesbian population, and, in a press release, the brokers said they were proud to have been able to secure the space for the chain’s next New York City location.
The landlord, Broadway 3820 LLC and Washington Heights Two Partners LLC, was represented by Ken Hochhauser and Zach Diamond of Winick Realty Corp.
Boxers NYC plans to open in the fall of 2018. Asking rents in the area are approximately $150 per square foot.
