Final nights at Hogs and Heifers

It was bittersweet moment as Meatpacking District biker bar Hogs and Heifers prepared to shutter its doors after its rent skyrocketed from $14,000 to $60,000 a month.

For owner Michelle Dell, who started out as the bar's first bartender, this final weekend is about celebrating the Hogs and Heifers legacy.

Known for its dancing bartenders and eclectic decor, the bar has forged a strong community since it opened in 1992 with the bartenders becoming an integral part of the experience.

Customers were nostalgic about an institution that could no longer survive here.

And for this final weekend, it was time to dance the night away one last time.

Hogs and Heifers will remain open to the public through Saturday night.
