The ever expanding Moose?

I’m old enough to have enjoyed Saturday nights in Mooseheads when it was just a dinky little ground floor pub smaller than the Phoenix with bands playing in the corner and people hanging from the rafters on busy nights.

From those humble beginnings it was a rapid expansion to “four floors of whores”, followed by fire and a Phoenix-like rising from the ashes.

Now a snout has sent word they’re going to be getting much bigger:

Just as a follow up to the Fletcher Jones building piece a few months ago, I just found out that Mooseheads have bought the sight for $2.2M.

Looks like they’ll be able to fit twice as many douchebags in.

I wonder if they’ll need twice the amount of coppers out the front too???

Good luck to them, they’re providing something the market just can’t seem to get enough of.

What’s Your opinion?

I played in a cricket team sponsored by Mooseheads when it was a tiny little pub, like JB said, smaller than the Phoenix. It was cosy little joint back in those days….

ANU? I think I still have my free mooseheads Tshirt somewhere. Doesnt fit anymore

Cheap beer though. And according to the Canberra Times, the Moose won’t be expanding, more likely a fast food joint

Bland, plastic, pretend pub, crappy beers, poor music and bland menu, you’ll see more life in a tramp’s vest, as exciting as watching milk curdle, a venue just perfect for Canebrra.

Mooseheads has become an institution.

For every Canberran or out of state visitor, a visit to Mooseheads at least once in a life time is a must. Definitely not my personal preference for a night out but I hope the Mooseheads tradition lives on.

Good for them.

‘I’m old enough to have enjoyed Saturday nights in Mooseheads when it was just a dinky little ground floor pub smaller than the Phoenix with bands playing in the corner and people hanging from the rafters on busy nights.’

What about old enough to remember it as JD’s?

Broke my watch once, literally hanging from the rafters in the Moose.
