The building on Lackawanna County Courthouse Square that once housed Tink’s, Hardware Bar and Mulligan’s Sports & Spirits is vacant once again.
Levels on Linden closed last month, according to Josie Dominick, the mother of building owner Frank Dominick.
Josie Dominick, who helps manage the property at 519 Linden St., said several people have expressed interest in purchasing the building, but the future plans remain unclear.
“Right now, everything is up in the air,” she said.
Athena Damaris of Scranton, who worked as a bartender at Levels, said she was informed March 26 that the bar was closing. “It was so last minute,” she said. “None of us were actually told until a few days into them packing up the building.”
Levels owner Jim Sperrazza could not be reached for comment.
Levels took over the more than 34,000 square-foot , four-floor property in 2015 after Mulligan’s closed shortly after Scranton’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
After Tink’s ceased operations in December 2009 , a Harrisburg-area corporation turned the building into three facilities: The Hardware Bar, which included live entertainment, staff and patron interaction; Reflex, a 1980s-style dance club; and Bourbon Street, a value-oriented tavern.
Tink’s Entertainment Complex , which served as a hub for live music for 30-plus years, hosted many well-known bands including Weezer in 1997 and Dropkick Murphys in 2007.
