News: Soho Revue Bar to close

Soho Revue Bar New Images 038
Following the closures of the Astoria, LA2, Ghetto, Metro, Sin and The End to allow Crossrail to be constructed, it seems the Soho Revue Bar is the latest west end live music venue to face the chop.

Emails to that effect from promoters and bands began arriving at musicOMH towers yesterday and continued through today.  

Speaking to musicOMH, the venue's booking manager Walt Etz said that a buyer for the venue, which entered administration in March 2008, could not be found.  As a result the venue, formally known as the Raymond Revue Bar, will host its final night tonight and close on Thursday 29th January, with the lease passing back to the landlord subsequently.

Artists we've seen at the venue include Hercules And Love Affair and The Kills

Gigs scheduled for February have been cancelled, including a showcase of The Boy Least Likely To's new album on 5th February.  

In the West End this leaves just the 100 Club, Madam JoJos, The Fly, Punk, St Moritz and Ronnie Scott's (the latter largely for jazz fiends, of course) as contemporary live music venues.
