All Bar Nun under threat????

By DNA - 2 June 2010 42

[First filed: Jun 1, 2010 @ 15:39]

Hey peeps,

I’m posting this here in the hopes others can supply more information, and to increase general awareness that a Canberra icon may be under threat!

I just had lunch at All Bar, and they have a flyer saying (something along the lines of) the lease is running out and won’t be renewed, and the landowner is pushing to build a 2 story nightclub?????

I’d love to be living on the other side of the road if that happens!

Here is the link to the application that the flyer directed me to:

More info

development application number is: DA-201017482

Objections to be sent to: app-sec@act.gov.au or Application Secretariat PO Box 365 Mitchell ACT 2911

[ED – We’ve requested more information from All Bar Nun but are yet to hear back]

UPDATE: Here’s the flyer, click for a larger version:

All Bar flyer

Going to war with the landlord rarely ends well.

Further Update: The Canberra Times has had a dig around this story and not come up with very much more.

What’s Your opinion?

Hopefully All Bar Nun will move to Civic, solidify it’s role as an upmarket Mooseheads.

Yeah thats just what Civic needs a upmarket version of Mooseheads. (like a rat with gold teeth)

Agree entirely. I miss the All Bar Nun of the ’90s. I can’t stand the “ABN” of today, and I don’t forgive it for eating up other decent restaurants.

Forget ABN, what about Delicateating – why can’t that come back!

Because it’s called debacle now and is located in Braddon.

Wow, there’s Wiltshire, Yorkshire, Liverpool, and several unidentified dialects in there.

I was going for Russell Crowe in Robin Hood 😉

Yeah, i can’t believe they ruined my favourite little hippy shithole and actually tried to make some money.
It’s UnAustralian I tells ya.

Nobody’s questioning their right to change it, we’re (for I shall add my voice to this sentiment) just saying don’t expect us to shed a tear for it now that it’s not somewhere we think is worth keeping.

Where is this “All Bar Nun” of which you speak, how come I’ve never heard of it?

Because you’re somebody who says stuff like “Oo ee, boi goom, Oi’m glad Oi’m not wunner ’em yoong folk coz dere’s nowt to do in Cunbra’ but you don’t actually know what you’re talking about.

Wow, there’s Wiltshire, Yorkshire, Liverpool, and several unidentified dialects in there. Bloody hell, I was born over half of England according to WMC!

Blimey, a polyglot of rural English dialects, is there no end to my talents?

Good. It’s a rubbish bar. It morphed into an awful club for yobbos, playing obnoxious dance music, and overcharging for drinks. Time for it to go.

When the push was on to close the gay sex club on the top floor, I remember reading an article where the (then) manager of All Bar Nun said he was reluctant to criticise the gay club because its owners were also ABN’s landlord. He did anyway. The gay club closed in 2004. Are the former owners of the club still ABN’s landlords? Is this a belated act of revenge?

embilly 4:43 pm 01 Jun 10

I don’t think it would be such a bad thing if All Bar Nun were to close. That place is becoming a worn out eyesore – time for fresh blood at O’Connor, I say.

A two storey night club will never get approved in a suburban shopping centre anyway. Hopefully All Bar Nun will move to Civic, solidify it’s role as an upmarket Mooseheads, and let something a little more up-to-date move into O’Connor.

Good luck with getting a night club up and running once the good people of O’Connor hear of it! I’m surprised ABN has survived as long as it has in that location.

All bar nun you were cool once, you provided a great place to just kick back and enjoy a quiet ale and good conversation. Then you changed man… you changed. Now you are frequented by all the trendies who moved in to the apartments near by, and who make it impossible to get a table at any time of day or night or to converse at any level other than a screaming yell.

Once I would have shed a tear. But not any more.
