Lancaster nightclub shuts down


November 10, 2019

A Lancaster nightclub will close its doors for the final time today (Sunday, November 10).

Hustle on Spring Garden Street has long been a popular late-night haunt in the city.

But the club's boss Sam Jones announced that Hustle will shut down for good after one final closing down party tonight.

"Sunday 10th November is our official closing down party and the doors of Hustle won’t be opening again," he wrote on Facebook.

"Firstly I’d like to thank all my team from when I took over the business in 2015 to present.

"Secondly, you! The customer...Thank you for so many memorable nights.

"I can’t really believe I’m writing this. The company has had some fantastic years and Hustle has stood strong for 15 years. However every good thing has to come to an end and I feel that now is the correct time to call it a day.

"It would be lovely to see as many of you on Sunday night for one last massive Hustle blow out."

Mr Jones said rising rent and business rates were the main reasons for the closure.

Hustle originally opened in the 1990s under the name 'H2O'.
