Post Pub340 sale rumour?
Anyone hear a rumour that Pub340 may be sold?

See below, a bit of text from a FB event invite I just received....


"IN case y'all didn't know, one of our best local punk venues is being sold, and will probably be bought up by some rich foreign twat who will turn the property into another goddamned Nester's Market.

THE DREADNOUGHTS are gonna rock this place one more time, for old times' sake. Bring your family, bring your friends, and watch out for the Cider Commandos..."

well that would make sense wouldn't it. fucking city is filled to the tits with scenester dance party scum, so it'll probably become a chandelier-lit high-ball watering hole for them to listen to their "hip" friends play their itunes "hit mix"....god I hate them, and I mean true hate, not that fake "i hate these cheeseburgers" kind of hate. :facepalm2:

Let's try to stay positive. That place has changed hands tiwce before that I've heard of, and has remained a kick ass place to go rock out. Hopefuly the numbers will speak for themselves. every time I've been there the joint was packed wall to wall with hard drinking motherfuckers. "chaching!"
on the other hand there's 917 main. (sorry to bring it up) I know some people who went to check it out. They said there were 10 people in there. They had 1 over priced beer and left. Point is hipsters have no shortage of places to water their ironic moustaches and there is room to spare. So why open another one?

So IF 340 is being sold, hopefuly it is to someone who knows how to use a calculator. A good investor will not fuck with a good thing.

Yeah, who knows. I'm .on the pessimistic side - considering its location. That area's chagning, definitely. But as you said, if they have the sense to keep it a good place for punk and metal, there's no reason they can't make money, instead of trying to go after the same crowd as every other place. Gotta be a way to have a place that lies in between yuppie-style upscale gouging and "cheap but located in a ruined wasteland".

watched the canada/russia game at 340... was pretty packed.

have definetly been there a few times when it was super dead (they closed early even), so who knows... hours could be tightened up a bit.

maybe they can finally get rid of the puke smell that I had to endure for three years of working there. They always say the place is getting sold, but really I doubt it. If they do though it would be great to see the basement renovated cause it was fucking out of control. it would make for a great place for a video as it is now.

Well if we could get 40, 000 people to throw $100 at us, we could all own our own venue!

...or we'd all own 0.0025% of a venue

or 40 of us could pony up $10,000, put a 10% downpayment on the joint, appoint wendythirteen as manager of the pub, and clean up the hotel to drive revenue to pay off the mortgage.

Here it is, asking price is 3,888,000.

Apparently, you need 35% down on commercial property mortgages, which is a little out of my price range.

But if it wasn't, that sign above it would read BALT-hill Arms Pub and every thursday would be $2 pint night.
