Texas music venue to be sold on eBay with bids starting at $1
AUSTIN, Texas - Ever wanted to own your own downtown Austin live music venue? Now's your chance--just log into eBay.
The Parish, located at 214 E. 6th Street, will be listed on the online auction site starting at noon on Friday, December 1. Bids will start at $1, and the auction will run through noon on December 10.
The 5,300 sq. ft. venue has a capacity of 425 people.
"Although selling The Parish was a hard decision to make, I am excited about the future and to see what change new owners can bring to both the venue and Austin's beloved live music landscape," says Doug Guller, CEO of ATX Brands. "From a live music perspective, nothing has ever been sold this way in Austin. With a starting bid of just $1, I wanted to offer a fair playing field from the start for music-lovers of all types to own a piece of true music history in the Live Music Capital of the World."
The buyer will also assume a 12-year lease with two five-year renewal options, Guller told Billboard. Additionally, there is an option to include the current TABC license, with renewal in early 2018.
