Jan MA1 leaves The Backstreet due to issues with the owner and management. ClubCP moves to the new Union venue There were chronic problems with the electrics including bare wires, overloading of wires and even in reception the sockets were taped on the wall with Gaffa Tape! If you require details of further details please see the Companies House website and search Bartie and Hector. Up the Chuffer opens as a one off promotion, turned up on the night! I hasten to add Martin Mason threatened MA1 with court action as we supposed of damaged his new pub business a bit rich coming from him after the bankruptcy that almost ruined several other companies including MA1 which my solicitor laughed at as everything is in the public domain in anycase and anyone can ask for the information.
I offered to fit electric doors but this was flatly refused.
As for the licensee. They were filthy. Due to confidential nature the venue name will not be disclosed. The mirrors were filthy, staff often urinated in the kitchen sink that also was dropping to bits.
We had other cruise nights in just to fill the place out.
