PHOENIX (FOX 10) -- There is a new bar in Downtown Phoenix that features a part of the city's past and the legacy of former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
The vacancy sign on the patio of Sazerac at 2nd Street and Garfield once towered over Arpaio's Tent City. The bar added the words "sorry" and "no" to the neon sign, changing the sign to read "sorry, no vacancy."
Arpaio ran for reelection in 2016, but was defeated by the current sheriff, Paul Penzone. Penzone dismantled Tent City in 2017.
An employee tells FOX 10 the sign was acquired at an auction.
Sazerac, a bar, opened to the public on Friday.
“Our owner is originally from Milwaukee, and he sort of wanted to bring back that Old Brunswick style back bar and kind of have like a city vibe, kind of bring something to Phoenix that will be lively,” said Michael Warrington.
