Bizerq and Benchwarmers Closing, "Barely Open a Few Months"

Shockingly and suddenly.

Just an hour ago, Wood Tavern owner and Wood Tavern Group founder Cesar Morales announced that he is shutting down both of his most recent nightlife ventures, Bizerq and Benchwarmers.

Located in the former Soho Lounge building at 175 NE 36th St., Morales' club and sports bar were heavily hyped, despite what the proprietor himself admits were "numerous obstacles, frustrations, and delays just to get the doors open."

And now, after being "barely open a few months," Bizerq and Benchwarmers are closed. For his part, Morales blames "exorbitant rent," which he tells Crossfade was $32,000 per month.
