ATWATER VILLAGE — The site of one of Atwater Village’s oldest bars — Club Tee Gee — is now up for lease a little more than one year after its owner died.
An Eastsider reader noticed that a “For Lease” sign has been placed above the bar’s yellow neon sign in the 3200 block of Glendale Boulevard. Club Tee Gee has been a neighborhood fixture since 1946 when the original owners, a pair of World War II veterans, opened the business. In recent years Club Tee Gee had been frequently described as one of L.A.’s classic dive bars, with drawings and images of Frank Sinatra and Betty Boop hanging on the walls. Owner Betty Bartlotta died in February 2016.
The rental listing posted on LoopNet offers the 2,000-square-foot space at $4 a square-foot or $8,000 a month. The new tenants would have to obtain a liquor license of their own (the current license remains in Barlotta’s name and expires at the end of April). The space, says the listing, “is perfect for another Restaurant/Bar to make history on one of the most friendliest pedestrian streets in LA.”
