Hoxton's Bridge & Tunnel Faces Imminent Closure
Author: Jonty Skrufff
Saturday, August 9, 2003Bridge & Tunnel have announced that they'll be shutting down on August 16, after neighbours in the gentrified area succeeded in opposing the club/ bar's licence renewal. Clearly disappointed, the bar issued an RIP statement this week, calling for patrons to contact Hackney Council to help their appeal.
"Neighbours had mounted a major campaign to close the venue from day one, and finally succeeded," the statement claimed.
"The same neighbours have enjoyed massive premiums on their property due to the explosion of entertainment venues in the area since the Blue Note, Hoxton Square in 1994."
