The Wardrobe opened its doors in 1999, and has been serving up great drinks, great food and great music ever since. Pete Connolly, a local entrepreneur, wanted somewhere that he could go to listen to really good live music, (and by that he meant everything from local music students to international bands,) in a relaxed environment. There wasn’t anywhere, so he decided to do it himself. Although he had been involved in a restaurant before, he had no experience of a live music venue or bar. He brought in his mates from Mojo to consult on the drinks, and set about creating somewhere that he would really like to come to. This emphasis on what would make a really good night out, rather than what would turn the greatest profit, has given The Wardrobe its unique feel. Since then, we have proudly remained an independently-owned business.
