Harley Hotel gone?

Recommended Posts

They put on a lot of good bands, so it's a shame it's gone from that point of view.

 

But it was a terrible place to see a band. Unless you were in the 10 people at the front you couldn't see whoever was playing due to the crowd and all the pillars in the way. So it didn't sound great either.

 

As a pub it wasn't much cop either. Bad beer and smelled of chips.

 

I hope they make a better venue in the new place.

According to this.

Lol, how long has to pass for a music venue to be called 'historic'? Ten, twenty years?

It was a knocking shop long before then. That's historic.  :)

I liked it. Funny old mess of a place. Looked like a grotty rock pub but seemed to have lots of club / urban type stuff on quite often.

It was awful towards the end.

 

it smelled bad as you walked in. The toilets were a disgrace.

 

the hotel had an awful reputation.

 

hopefullt someone takes it on and tidies it up a bit.

Yes  you kind of expect a place like that not to be perfect but their standards made it a no go for me am afraid.Pretty sure the hotel was featured in a worst hotel feature a few years ago.

When did it become a pub and what was it before? I have a vague recollection it wasn't that long ago (maybe 20 years or less?) and it wasn't anything that was open to the public before that. Is that right?

 

It's a good location for a pub you would think. So I hope it can stay as a pub and improve.

Yes I think there is a market round there for a more upmarket music venue not  just aimed at students featuring local bands charging a bit more but  with good beer and higher standards.
