Beloved Manchester venue The Roadhouse will close its doors at the beginning of June.
The basement club on Newton Street, Manchester was opened 22 years ago by John McBeath, originally as a blues club. In recent years the venue has hosted such club nights as Hoya:Hoya and BPM.
“The Roadhouse has championed thousands of local musicians who dreamed of rock’n’roll stardom,” said owner Kate Mountain, who has been in charge of the venue since 1999. “It was a commitment we have always taken seriously, offering a stage and an opportunity to local bands from the first week we opened the doors and will do so until the very last.”
The Roadhouse will host its final night on May 31. [via Manchester Evening News]
