Closing at the end of the year
Although, it's not like I've been for years. Is the Famous Cock going too? Can't be popular enough to want to add more seating down there, can it?
The whole site will be redeveloped into a block if flats, I'd imagine, given its location right next to the station.
and the live sound was terrible
I found it had shit sound for live bands and an overly expensive bar. Can't say i'm happy about it closing, but it won't really be missed either.
RIP Buffalo Bar.
fun night, would probably have been more often if I was still into my shambling british indie pop
I'm really pissed off that it's closing, really am. It's all dingy and dirty and the way it's going London will be full of luxury flats and cocktail bars and i'm really pissed off.
Had some great nights there. The 12 Bar Club is going too.
You can tell I'm a fan of tiny, dingy and dirty venues.
Eeeesh. I know things move on and the indie scene isn't what it was, but it still feels a bit bleak.
apart from a bunch of regulars. The door charge always puts me off, also it's massively clicky. That said, it's part of history. Denmark street looks bad enough as it is.
the 12 bar is just awful, can't say i'll miss it
or nope you wont miss it?
had some great times there, think it's an amazing venue to see solo acoustic shows, sat on the balcony, easily able to kick the singer in the face if the urge takes you. also fun but a bit silly for full band shows. like it a lot
Not surprised to hear it's going, seems every week a new dickhead food place is opening on Denmark Street.
even buildings on the south side. The studios and alley at the back are being built over and the shops are being gutted leaving only the facades. Developer says they'll be retained for musical industry use, but reading between the lines doesn't envisage they'll be music shops. The rent will be too expensive.
On the plus side there will be an 800 capacity venue in the basement of the new building.
...but I'd still rather have a crap venue than no venue.
The Lughole and Tie Dye Tapes in Sheffield are being turned into flats. Shit year for gig venues I actually like
