MercBar Offers $1000 for Return of Stolen Dog Painting

New, 8 comments

Restaurateur John McDonald writes in with the upsetting news of a robbery at MercBar in Soho. One of the three dog paintings (above) that have hung in the bar since it opened 17 years ago was stolen over the weekend. He writes, "Don’t ask me how someone managed to sneak out of the bar with it but they did and now there are only two. It’s not a valuable piece of art but it’s a piece of bar history so I want it back."

So he's offerings a reward. $1000 for anyone that returns it or proves who has it. We wouldn't rule out the possibility of an inside job. Call the bar or send any leads this way.
