Old Bar Owners Acquire The Public Bar
Following it's closure last September, North Melbourne venue The Public Bar has been acquired by owners of Fitzroy's Old Bar, Liam Matthews, Singa Unlayiti and Joel Morrison.
Speaking to Beat, co-owner and booker for The Old Bar Joel Morrison shared:
"The Old Bar is proud to announce that we're taking over North Melbourne's The Public Bar. Hopefully opening in October (in the hands of our liquor licensing overlords). Bands, late night license, food, good staff and less dunny smell are all things that are on the cards. Basically it'll mirror The Oldie."
The re-opening is slated for sometime between September and October. Will they bring back $1 pots? Only time will tell! Stay tuned to Beat and The Old Bar Facebook page for more announcements.
