Was there ever an official reason given for Drakes folding?

emm...hard business decision etc etc....just never makin enough money to pay all the oveheads (wasnt just rent you know for all those who ask 'how much was the rent like?!', it was water, phone, gas & electric bills, wages, PRS, VAT, stock, blah blah blah and all the million other things (even bog rolls etc!) that needed paid...) that needed paid....

and if the business had folded then a coupla people would have been liable for rent for around 7 yrs!!! nae good...thus decision (not an easy one i can tell ya) had to be made to safeguard futures etc

oh the joys of being an independent business!!! :down::cheers:

Shiprow is located within the heart of Aberdeen City Centre near the West End of Union Street

Am i missing something, or do they really not know what part of town the property is located in?

And you can be fairly sure it's a big fat NIT.

why shouldn't it stay as a music venue? it's been one since my mum and dad were young.

Because if it doesnt make money its not worth running.

Wasn't it a gay bar and not a music venue before being Dr.Drakes?

If I ran a gay bar it would OWN. there would be skat videos and plastic over all the floors and seats.

If I live to see that day I will be a happy man indeed.
