Hogs & Heifers

Say goodbye to tabletop dancing and $3 PBRs: Hogs & Heifers is leaving the Meatpacking District.

The iconic honky-tonk will close on August 23. Thor Equities paid about $100 million for the building on the corner of Washington and West 13th Streets in 2013. After Hogs’ lease expired last year, the rent jumped to $60,000 a month, from just $14,000, according to the New York Daily News

“I’m heartbroken,” co-founder and owner Michelle Dell told the Daily News. “I’ve raised this business by hand for 23 years. At the end of the day, it’s like a losing a child.” [NYDN]Christopher Cameron
