Lee Gorton, owner of The Jackalope, Barlow Moor Road, Chorlton has posted this on Facebook:
Right folks, slightly bittersweet news here but The Jackalope, as we know it, is closing it’s doors as of midnight on Sunday, June 1st.
It’s been a wonderful ride, we’ve learnt an awful lot along the way and between me, you and the rest of the world, I think I'm fairly close to finding something, somewhere even more exciting.
But for now, it’s has to be about bowing out with good grace and sharing our final week, drinking, singing, dancing and chatting contentedly, amidst the damn fine company we’ve become accustomed too.
I’ve had more incredible nights within these tiny walls than should have ever been possible and that’s the way I want it remembered.
