Bar to close

Recommended Posts

Just read that Squares is closing on Riverside later this month so I guess that the Queen of Iceni will be even more packed on a matchday. Think it might be worth just doing a mass order at the bar rather than going back for a second /third round[:@]

I hope this aint true but most likely is as norwegian blue shut down a few months ago and they were owned by the ppl that own squares. Norwich is turning completely shit with all these places shutting down!!

Squares in never busy apart from on a matchday so doesnt really suprise me. Only reason we went in there is because they show early kick off games on the telly there. Inside it is a total dump. Unfortunately as people say Wetherspoons is going to be even more busy. When riverside first opened i seem to remember there being about 5 differerent bars there and now there is only wetherspoons left

[quote user="Lord Flashheart"]I thought it might close sooner or later. It always looks empty. Personally I was more upset when The Cricketers Rest on Queens Road closed.[/quote]Same here, used to love it pre match in the Cricketers.

Went past last week, would love to have the money to buy it, the atmosphere was always great in there, especially before Scum games.

That''s there stupid fault. They tgold us to get out because we didn''t have a drink. We were using the itbox machine thing, and we would have had drinks when we wanted them. Nobody else was in there, so even the publicity of having some people in there would have been better than none. But no. Apparently you must have a drink at all times.

Doesn''t suprise me at all. Well done the manager and the bouncers who decided that. Now you have no job. Congratulations.

Riverside''s going to be looking rather empty at this rate (although it''s not a bad thing Squares has gone).  Hopefully Hollywood Bowl will open soon so there''s a reason to go there.

If you saw the takings and the rent it was amazing it ever lasted as long as it did.

Its a shame but this is the reason for he recession and many pub closures the rents and rates are just so so high for such places.

I think the rivergarden also is up for sale/rent (maybe old news as I work abroad).

So it shows you that part of the city is really suffering.
