Location Matters

Point Loma punk club Shakedown Bar, known for strong drinks and live music, changed hands last year, and now Eater learns that the bar's business assets have gone up for sale. Per real estate broker Paul Ahern of Location Matters, Shakedown will be closing until a buyer is found, and will then most likely be renovated and reconcepted.

The building, which has been a bar since 1988, was home to the Rhythm Lounge for several years before original Shakedown owner "Dead Ted" took over in 2010 and transformed it into a punk bar. Count Shakedown as another victim to the difficulties of the music venue business; fellow clubs Griffin, Brick by Brick, and 4th & B have all shuttered in the past couple years.

The building is approximately 1,300 square feet with parking in the rear; interested parties should contact Ahern here.
