According to a Picken Real Estate listing, the bi-level bar and music venue currently known as Rehab (and before that, Midway and Scenic) can be yours for $350,000. The 3,200-square-foot space’s eight-year lease is $8,195 per month. Curiously, the listing identifies the venue only as “former nightclub icon, Save the Robots,” which is funny since Robots, besides being the most mythologized club aside from Area, was of course a quasi-infamous after-hours (though it was as Guernica that the spot achieved true notoriety after a stabbing). Manhattan Offender recently recalled being asked for coke there — twice by the same person. Anyone care to rekindle the magic?
