London venue The Lock Tavern isn't closing after all, it's just got new owners

Earlier this week, Time Out revealed that London venue The Lock Tavern was going to close at the end of this month, citing confirmation from the venue’s bookers, Lanzarote. 

But, it's not - the Camden venue just has new owners having been purchased by the East London Pub Co., and they're intending to launch a half a million pounds restoration project.

"The Lock Tavern is a jewel in the crown of North London, and the East London Pub Co. intend to keep it so," reads a statement from the new owners. "Preserving the original atmosphere, much loved aesthetics and traditional interiors, the phased restoration will take place over six-months. The venue will see the installation of a new bar, much coveted roof terrace and rear beer garden. Much of the bar team will remain the same, with some taking more involved roles in the pub’s operation, events and music scheduling."

There will be a short closure period, but only from 29th – 31st August.
