The Bear Closes
## UPDATE! THE BEAR HAS REOPENED AT A NEW LOCATION – 730 GEORGE ST, SYDNEY ##
One of Chinatown’s first small bars The Bear has regrettably had to close their doors, due to the dodgey dealings of their landlord.
Opening in July last year, The Bear ,which was situated on Thomas lane, had gathered a good following in the Ultimo/Haymarket area of Sydney.
According to owner Andy Curtis, their troubles started when the previous landlord, who they (sub)leased the property from, allegedly failed to pass on their rent to the owner (effectively stealing it).
Despite 3 x weeks of trying to negotiate a new lease directly with owner/landlord, regrettably and agreement couldn’t be reached, and they had to close their doors.
Grace and Andy have said they’re planning to bounce back, bigger and better, and already have plans for another bar in the works – stay tuned!
