GREENPOINT — The punk, DIY venue located in a Morgan Avenue warehouse for the last two years, will close its doors next by Halloween, its organizers announced.
The owners of Aviv at 496 Morgan Ave. will host a series of final shows including a Summer's End Music Festival over the next two months, then they'll close up shop at the end of October when their lease expires, according to a post on the venue's Facebook Page.
The dimly-lit, grimy warehouse has played host to a broad array of punk rock, queer-friendly and experimental sounds, hosting Latinx Punk Fest and a wide array of up and coming Brooklyn bands.
"You were/are quite simply the best place to play in brooklyn," one saddened commenter wrote about the closing announcement. "We will burn the mother down and rebuild."
Though unlike many of the other venues, Aviv's organizers have pledged to reopen elsewhere.
"This is not the last you'll hear from us," the farewell post reads. "We're working hard to reopen somewhere else, we're in too deep to ever stop."
The owners didn't immediately respond to an email request for further comment.
Patch first reported that Aviv was closing.
