Saint Vitus Bar celebrate 13th year, share video update on shutdown

saint vitus bar 24

Brooklyn's Saint Vitus Bar, located in NYC, faced a shutdown during a Mindforce show last February due to a NYC Department of Buildings complaint. Issues highlighted included missing maximum occupancy signs, potential overcapacity, an outdated Certificate of Occupancy, and operating without a Place of Assembly Certificate of Operation (PACO).

The venue responded, urging patience while navigating bureaucratic challenges and promising updates as they resolve the situation. They aim to resume normal operations swiftly and are exploring ways to support affected onsite staff.

Yesterday, April 12th, marked the venue's 13th anniversary. Saint Vitus Bar posted a brief video update to commemorate the occasion, with the following post:

Today marks 13 years of Saint Vitus Bar! We thought we'd be celebrating today a little differently, but we wanted to share this quick thank you to everyone who has graced our space with their love for live music, and continues to support what we do.⁠

We wish we had more concrete updates for you, but the situation continues to unfold with new challenges and we are still navigating the path. For a deeper look about how we got here—from the night of the shutdown then back through time showcasing everything we've done, represented in a tangible format through the new Saint Vitus Bar Book—click the link for a behind the scenes anniversary clip.⁠

While we are gutted to hit this milestone while being unable to do our thing at our home base, we are proud to finally share the book (which is being sent to our Kickstarter backers first, and available for purchase on our site.) We are also continuing to put on shows at our friends' spaces, and will see you out there in the crowd. Thanks for 13 years of Vitus, and here's to the next 13, however they may shape up to look.⁠
