Popular gay bar closes in Soho
Another popular gay bar has closed in Soho, without warning.
Molly Moggs has become the latest LGBT venue to close its doors. It’s not known why the bar has closed, according to sources even staff members are shocked at the sudden closure of the ever popular bar.
A note on its Facebook page told fans,
“Unfortunately today we say goodbye to the Molly Moggs that we’ve all loved for many years.
“We can’t thank our loyal customers and our new customers enough for sticking with us through the thick and thin and making it such a valuable part of Soho.
“Who knows what the future holds for good old Molly’s but for now ‘there will be no singing drag queens at Molly Moggs.
“Once again, thank you from all of us. The queens, the management, the staff and the owners.”
In 2015 the pub’s lease went up for sale for £275,000, with only 20 years left on its lease. Molly Moggs is set in a listed building so only the leasehold is available to purchase and it is likely to remain a pub because of the licensing conditions, this is not a guarantee that it will remain a gay venue once new owners are found.
