Neighborhood bar and music venue Bar 4 in Park Slope is closing.
Yesterday, they announced on their Facebook page and website:
"It is with great sadness that we announce that after 14 years as a neighborhood institution, music venue and beloved Slope staple, Bar 4 will be permanently closing its doors on August 15, 2013... For a decade-and-a-half this venue has been a launching pad for musicians who have gone on to international acclaim and played host to local acts with world class talent. The neighborhood has changed, and so have we. But as one era gives way to another we must face the financial realities that have confronted so many other good, hardworking Brooklynites..."
And gentrification takes another.
