A popular Doncaster town centre pub and night spot is to shut down next month.

Che Bar on Silver Street will close in May - almost ten years after it was first unveiled to drinkers for the first time.

In a post on the pub’s Facebook page, a statement said: “So then, the rumours are true!

“After almost 10 years and over 1,500,000 customers passing the doors, Ché Bar Doncaster will close for its last time.”

The pub will shut down in the early hours of Monday May 2 - Bank Holiday Monday, although its last night of trading will be Sunday May 1.

The statement added: “We hope that in the last 10 years we have helped many of Doncaster’s nightlife customers have some amazing nights to remember!

“We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all the managers, supervisors, staff, door supervisors, and DJ’s past and present, which have helped Ché Bar Doncaster, become the amazing nightlife entertainment venue it is today.

“But, most importantly we would like to say a massive thank you to you, the customers, that made all this possible, as without you it couldn’t have been such a big success for so many years.

“Ché Bar Doncaster has ran its course and now it’s time for a change.”

The pub will shut down for the last time at 3am on May 2 - but is set to bounce back in a new guise.

The Facebook post continued: “However, it’s not all sad, from the Bank Holiday Monday Ché Bar will be getting one of the biggest refurbishments Doncaster’s nightlife has ever seen.

“You are all invited, to have one last drink with us as we say goodbye.”

Updates about the new bar are set to be unveiled over the coming weeks.

The statement concluded: “Once again, a big thank you for your continued custom and in the words of Ché Guevara himself “hasta la victoria siempre! - Until Victory, Always!”

The pub is named after legendary revolutionary Che Guevara, a key figure in the Cuban Revolution and a counterculture symbol of rebellion for more than six decades.
