On April 3rd, 2022, someone came into our bar and poured gasoline on the floor causing an explosion that set the bar in flames. He was wearing a dark hoodie and a backpack and immediately ran from the scene. Everyone inside made it out, but two people were brought to the hospital and are in stable condition.
We still don’t know what to make of this cruel act of violence. In only five short months we were privileged to become home to such a talented and vital community of artists. It breaks our hearts that anyone would seek to threaten that for any reason.
At this time we haven’t identified the suspect or any motives, but we’re working closely with the authorities to investigate. If anyone has any information that might be useful in the investigation, please share it with us directly (email and DMs are open).
We're launching this Gofundme page to support everyone directly affected, our staff who will be out of work for the foreseeable future, and eventually the repair of the space.
We love you, and we will come back from this.
