The venue only recently reopened.
Brunswick venue Bombay Rock has abruptly announced it has ceased trading “effective immediately”. No explanation has been given for the venue’s sudden closure.
Posting on Facebook earlier today, venue staff thanked “all the awesome bands and patrons who partied along with us over the past year”. Musicians such as Duckeye and Murderballs were still slated to perform at the venue.
The venue originally opened in the ’70s and operated until 1991 when it was destroyed by a fire. It only reopened late last year. Throughout its tenure, Bombay Rock has hosted high-profile acts such as INXS, Australian Crawl, The Angels, Cold Chisel and Skyhooks.
Editor’s note: Bombay Rock has since deleted its Facebook page.
