With pubs opening on July 4th, we have been asked whether The Bill Murray is opening. For now - regrettably - the answer is no.
In 2016, with your help, we custom built The Bill Murray to be a Live Performance venue. We are not yet sure how to adapt to become anything else while at the same time making sure that everyone can stay safe.
This has to be the most important priority for our staff and our community. We don’t think we can safely reopen on 4th July or that it would be responsible.
The only way we have been able to survive the last few years is by becoming a successful comedy club. As a tied venue, profit from drinks is not as big as you’d think (our brewery charge lots for drinks). We break even only by hosting nights that lots of people want to attend
We will constantly be reviewing our decision (and looking to medical and government advice) and look forward to welcoming you all back with open arms in the not too distant future.
In the meantime, your continued support on Patreon means the world.
Stay safe and hopefully see you soon.
