What was once Wakefield’s premier pub for the music scene has closed down – O’Donoghues on George Street.
Apparently it was last open on 3rd November; the website’s gone too. I’ve heard it’s been handed back to the brewery by the latest licensee, who also owned the Graziers next door.
It does seem odd to leave it empty for three weeks though. With the Tut’n’Shive closing during the Summer this only really leaves Henry Boon’s as a place for musicians who don’t fit into the niche of the Snooty Fox’s rock crowd or Westgate’s dance and pop scene.
