Backstretch bar for lease

The Backstretch Tap Room and Terrace at 38 Caroline St. appears to be closed indefinitely after a short run this spring and summer.

A "For Lease" sign has been hanging on the door for the last couple of weeks and the phone number in the bar has been disconnected.

Co-owner Robert V. Lizardo, 40, has faced one legal battle after another since opening in May, including a temporary closure while waiting for an overdue liquor license and a felony grand larceny charge made because he allegedly bounced a $40,000 check used to open the business.

Lizardo has not returned calls seeking comment.

Court documents in Saratoga Springs City Court show that Lizardo missed a scheduled meeting Nov. 24. A warrant was then issued for his arrest but was recalled a few days later. He is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 22.
