  CBGB - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
CBGB, also CBGB's or CB's is a club at the address 315 Bowery in New York City, New York.
CBGB was founded in 1973, by Hilly Kristal, on the site of his earlier bar Hilly's on the Bowery, which he ran from 1969 to 1972.
Though CBGB was utilized as a hot spot for touring bands to hit when they came through New York, the scene that kept the bar alive during the 1980s was New York's underground hardcore scene.

In her ruling, Judge Joan Kenney praised the club's impact on the neighborhood, which she said was plagued by "destitution, degradation and substance abuse" when the club opened in 1973.

The BRC had sought to double CBGB's rent from $19,000 to $40,000 and said it wouldn't enter into any talks with Kristal until he paid what the committee claimed was $91,000 in back rent.
Despite the BRC opting not to renew the lease, a Manhattan civil court judge ruled earlier this month that the historic East Village venue and popular tourist destination could not be evicted simply on the basis of a bookkeeping error that left Kristal so far behind in the rent.
CBGB' advocates vowed to battle it out with the BRC in court--which might buy the stuffy, graffiti-covered rock mecca some time until a judge settles the matter.
