It has now been reported that Lenox Lounge will shutter by December 31st of this year. The landlord of 228 Lenox Avenue has increased the rent to $20,000 for each month and has thus forced the owner of the famous lounge to close its doors after seven decades. A famous restauranteur who is a partner of the notable Nobu restaurant downtown has signed the lease for the location with the intent of transforming the space into Harlem's next destination spot but will not be able to do so using the lounge's famous name. The current owner of Lenox Lounge still owns the trademark for the historic jazz spot and will only consider a partnership but refuses to sell the name. If an agreement does not come about soon, then Lenox Lounge could possibly disappear forever: LINK
