Walkabout bar closed for the 'foreseeable'

It is understood that Australian themed bar, Walkabout, has closed for the 'foreseeable'.

Walkabout is described as Australian themed bars with the best seats for watching sport to the ultimate party venues, chilled places to meet up and get stuck into our Aussie food.

According to sources the Cheap Street venue, which is owned by the same group as Slug and Lettuce and Zinc, had all furniture stacked up and was closed by six last night.


Early this morning the venue's website stated it was open from 4pm, but that has now been updated with a closed message alongside each day. Meanwhile when trying to book a table at the bar, it states "We are currently closed. The next available date is Monday 16 November."


A post on Facebook has since said: "Following the government's instruction, we are now closed until further notice. We would like to thank our customers for supporting us through this difficult time and look forward to welcoming you all back when the COVID-19 pandemic subsides."
