The new location is yet to be revealed.
After much confusion over its future, Cherry Bar has locked in its final day of trading in the beloved AC/DC Lane location before moving to a new address. The bar will be closing its doors on Sunday July 28 now that all the “red tape issues” have been cleared up.
On THIS Saturday July 6th 🍒Okay so we've announced that our last day of trade down AC/DC Lane is Sunday the 28th of…
Venue staff announced back in January that Cherry Bar would be moving from AC/DC Lane to a new, unconfirmed location. Cherry Bar hosted its Farewell AC/DC Lane party on Saturday March 30 and last drinks were meant to be called the following day. Needless to say, that didn’t quite go as planned. The logistics around relocating took longer than expected, so the venue re-opened in the meantime.
“It’s a bit embarrassing to host a huge Farewell Month in March at Cherry only to re-open in May, but it’s even more embarrassing to not let local bands play at Cherry when we’re paying rent and the bar is just sitting there waiting to be used,” a post on Facebook read.
The venue’s new location hasn’t been revealed yet, but staff have said there’s “more news to follow later on”.
