A CAMDEN Town pub which doubles up as music venue has been boarded up – but operators say it will not be closed forever.

The Unicorn pub in Camden Road will be shut for three months after being bought new owners. The bar has been a favourite stop for fans of punk, rock and metal bands. Gig bookers said on a Facebook update that the venue had been sold, adding: “The new owners have said they wish to carry on as we are once the 3 months have passed so I’m currently waiting for more info.”

Fans left messages in support of keeping it the way it is. “One of the best venues we have had the pleasure to play at,” said one musician. “Hope this all gets up and running again as venues like this are few and far between.”
