Carlisle bar shut after company buys lease

One of Carlisle’s best known city centre bars has closed after the entrepreneur behind it sold the lease to a new owner.

Have your say

Mike, so all that needs to happen is the psychology of 100,000 people to change and a superclub will succeed? Mmm, i'm calling longshot :-)

Peter if there's one thing the city needs less than a big nightclub it's coffee shops! N less than that it is more bookies...see today's story in cumberland news!Shame to see Cassa go it was a nice bar and downstairs was one of the best in town.
Can't see the city having demand for a large club again as long as bars etc are allowed to open past midnight.
Maybe if pubs weren't taxed so highly then they might be able to trade more successfully like coffee shops for instance!

Back in the day..... We had the Pagoda, the wheel/legends, Buskers was a late entry but great on a Monday night!! A few rough clubs that we went to mid week..... But, it all worked!! Now you don't know where you are, too any places trying to be all things to all people........

I agree with Andrew, Carlisle will never be a big city until it gets a Primark. Imagine, you could buy a top for a fiver, get mullered, then get it ripped off your back, all within 100 yards, great value for money!?

Carlisle is indeed screaming out for a nightclub. The few good bars that we do have all offer a similar experience and genre of music. The fact that nightclubs have failed in the past lends more to the naive nature of the revellers rather than the clubs own problems. If people were willing to give these places a fair chance to establish themselves then a new club would definitely be a positive addition to Carlisles nightlife scene.

Turn it into a Primark

Aye, the fact the big nightclubs have all shut down seems to say the complete opposite. People only went in because they still sold drink after the pubs had shut

Personally I can't see how Carlisle is "screaming out for a proper nightclub venue that could cater for between 600 and 800 people" I don't know the scene though so...

I got interested when I read "he has plans to introduce a fresh concept to Carlisle which was already working well on the continent." I'd like to see a Coffee shop but nowhere near all the drunks in Botchergate.

"carlisles screaming out for a 600-800 capacity nightclub venue" all the pubs and and all the bars are nightclubs now so theres certainly not a need for one in this day and age as no single place is ever going to have the longevity of buskers legends cats whiskers and pagoda with so many places to go
