The American Bar is part of a national initiative launched by Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of hundreds of independent music venues.
Our venue faces closure because we have had to shut the doors and cancel gigs due to the corona pandemic.
Your donations will be used to to keep the venue alive during hibernation, because there is still money going out while there is no money coming in. We are also doing our best to pay our regular musicians to stream live gigs from home to keep our customers engaged.
If we hit our target, and we can prevent the closure of our venue, everything above the amount we need will be donated to the Music Venue Trust GMV Crisis Fund to protect other venues just like ours, right across the country.
