A BOURNEMOUTH bar has been struck with a notice of repossession after its sudden closure.

Revolution in Old Christchurch Road announced it would be shutting its doors with immediate effect on April 30.

It came after several planned closures by Revolution Bars across the country at the beginning of the year.

Chief executive, Rob Pitcher, previously said the closures was the result of younger customers feeling strained from the cost-of-living crisis.

Revolution Bournemouth’s announcement said: “We have loved shaking your cocktails and throwing unmissable parties over the years, but as of today, we'll sadly be closing the doors of Revolution Bournemouth.

“We want to say a massive thank you for partying with us, it’s been incredible.”

However, a notice of repossession has now been plastered on the doors by South East Enforcement.

The troubled bar chain recently held talks with rival operator Nightcap over a potential takeover deal.

The firms held discussions around “a range of possible transactions”, including a possible offer for the entirety of Revolution, which also owns Peach Pubs and Revolucion de Cuba venues.

Bournemouth’s Halo nightclub also shut its doors this year after a decade of operations.

Club owner Ty Temel said the change of student culture, the external pressures of Brexit and cost of living crisis resulted in its closure.
