EV inspiration for “Rent” musical up for grabs

The Life Café, immortalized in the Broadway musical “Rent” is officially up… for rent. 

The Life Café, immortalized in the Broadway musical “Rent” is officially up… for rent.

The 10th St. and Ave. B eatery was shuttered in September of last year, citing building repairs needed by the landlord, according to the Daily News.

New York Realty Exchange listed the building on Wednesday of last week, but didn’t include a price.

Jonathan Larson, the playwright of “Rent,” wrote much of his award winning production at the restaurant and even set some of the play inside the Alphabet City staple.

“Rentheads” were known to make pilgrimages to the origin of the Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning play since it’s debut in 1996.

The second Life Café, located in Bushwick, is still open.
