Cambridge might be known for its countless pubs, and while we may not have the most nightclubs, the ones we do have are iconic.
That’s why it’s a sad blow to the city that it has been announced Fez has officially closed down, with no plans to reopen their doors when the lifting of restrictions allows.
Like most entertainment and nightlife venues, the club has been shut since March when coronavirus first began to spread across the country.
A decision was then taken not to renew the property when the lease expired last year, and it has been confirmed that staff who worked at the bar have been made redundant.
Back in March, when they first shut their doors, Fez took to Twitter to say they “made the difficult decision to temporarily close our doors… until further notice.”
In an optimistic note, the club said in that statement they “look forward to welcoming you back again in the not too distant future.”
However, it seems Cambridge clubbers will no longer be drinking VKs by the bar or running up and down the stairs as they look for their friends.
The venue has since been listed for rent with a business rate of £28,244, according to reports.
Eclectic Bars will still have a presence in the city, however, as Lola Lo’s will be ready to open their doors and invite us all back in with welcome arms once it is safe to do so.
The Brighton Group and Eclectic Bars, who owned Fez, have been contacted for a further comment.
