Eagle Tavern talks on again

The Eagle Tavern’s fate is still uncertain, but owner John Gardiner said today (Thursday, April 21) that negotiations involving the landlord and possible new owners are back on again.

Asked how much longer the bar could stay open, Gardiner said he wasn’t sure, and “It’s a short window,” but he appeared hopeful something could be worked out.

Eagle manager Ron Hennis and Dallas Eagle owner Mark Frazier have been hoping to buy the bar, but property owner John Nikitopoulos had apparently been unwilling to negotiate until yesterday, after he filed an eviction lawsuit.

Gardiner also corrected a message put out by a community member who’s been working to save the bar

In a Facebook message yesterday, Glendon Hyde, who’s also known as drag queen Anna Conda, said the bar was in the first year of a five year lease.

But Gardiner said, “I don’t know where they get all this information from. It’s absurd.”

He said that the bar’s lease expired more than a year ago, so “I guess it goes month to month.”

The April 28-May 4 edition of the Bay Area Reporter will have more Eagle coverage.
