The well known Cork venue The Pavilion has closed.
Over the years the Carey’s lane pub hosted gigs by Franz Ferdinand and
Mike Scott and many others but yesterday the “Pav” suddenly announced
on twitter they were closing with immediate effect.
No reason was given but venue managers thanked their loyal customers,
staff, bands, and DJs.
Separately, another licensed premises – from the UK Wetherspoons chain
– is expected to open in the same general area soon.
