Lounge 47’s furniture, appliances auctioned off Monday

Jan. 22, 2013 By Bill Parry

The owners of Lounge 47, the popular bar/restaurant which closed last week following the landlord’s decision not to renew the lease, auctioned off their furniture, kitchen equipment and appliances yesterday.

Freezers, cash registers, stoves, 10 bar stools and even the potted plants were all sold and hauled off from the 47-10 Vernon Blvd. location— by workers from Mountain Auction.

Herb, a supervisor for Mountain Auction, was pleased with how well the company did. He said his crew has had a lot of practice clearing out similar eateries.

“We auction off and remove contents from companies that lose leases [all the time]. We help them make a clean divorce.”

Yesterday, Mountain Auction sold a variety of Lounge 47’s items– from cooking utensils to the plasma TV’s. The company even had buyers for the 5 garden tables and 22 chairs from the backyard dining area that led to the noise complaints from the neighbors that caused the restaurant to lose its lease.

“We heard about all the problems with the neighbors,” Herb said. “We’re trying to be really quiet.”
