London's Buffalo Bar to close, announce final show for New Years Eve

13 November 2014, 12:05 | Written by Laurence Day

One of London's finest live music establishments, Buffalo Bar, is to close "imminently".

The venue, close to the Union Chapel and Highbury & Islington tube station, has been forced to shut its doors by the landlords after 14 years

On Facebook, the bar's Delia Sparrow gave a statement:

"It is with heavy hearts that we announce the imminent closure of the Buffalo Bar. We have been served a very short notice period from our new landlords, after being here for over 14 years. They remain undecided what to do with our space. It will remain closed for the foreseeable future. Make of that what you will.

So, after all this time, we will be hosting our final event on New Years Eve, 2014. This night will serve as a fundraiser for our full time staff, who find themselves without a job just before Christmas... For anyone wants to come down and say goodbye, now is the time.

In the meantime, we are putting together a few memorable shows, with some of our favourite bands from down the years, starting with The Subways on 3rd December. Further events will be announced on our Twitter and Facebook pages. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been involved with us; All the promoters, the DJs, the many thousands of bands and, of course, all the staff who've pitched in over the years."
