For the last fourteen years, Bar Sepia has been a unique bar and restaurant, meeting place, and thriving hub for neighbors and friends in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. It has been a privilege to serve a family of customers who reflect the diverse community of this neighborhood.

Unfortunately, on March 1st, Bar Sepia may have to close its doors and become another casualty of the accelerated pace of change sweeping through communities like ours.


But we are still working tirelessly to find a way to stay. Our goal is to buy our building, and for the last two years we’ve been turning every stone to assemble resources to reach that goal. Over the last few days, those efforts paid off when we received two offers for financing toward the purchase of our building.


We want to thank our community for the outpouring of love and support since the announcement of our impending closing. Many have asked how they can help.

Even with the financing offers we’ve received, we still have to close a funding gap to be able to buy a permanent home for Bar Sepia. We’ve started this campaign so our supporters can pledge donations to help us close that gap.  Because the clock is ticking, we need to meet our goal by March 1st.

We want to be clear that our landlord is currently in contract with another buyer. We hope to have an opportunity to make an offer, but if we are not successful in our efforts to purchase the building, your pledge will be returned. Time is short, we have set an ambitious goal, and we’re all in it together.

Thanks for your support, and for letting us share our story with you.

To Our Customers, Supporters and Dear Friends: Firstly, thank you for tidal wave of support since the announcement of our closing. We are truly touched by your comments and appreciate your generous donations. Unfortunately, after February 28th Bar Sepia will no longer have a liquor license to operate. We will, however, continue to press forward and doing everything possible to stay open up to and including making an offer to purchase the building. We are hopeful but if we cannot reach this goal, your contribution will be returned.
With Gratitude,
Delissa & Elia
