The Barn in the Village closes its doors
After a good, more-than-two-decades run, The Barn/The Stables at Church and Carlton has shut down. According to a report by Xtra, The Barn owner Russell Palloo cited depleting profits as the main cause for closure. The nightclub also needs significant rennovations, which, according to Palloo, would come at too high a cost.
The Barn first opened back in the 1980's, and was closed for a couple of years in 2004 when its then-owner was found dead in his apartment. The club reopened in 2007 under its current management.
Though the building itself has not yet been sold, Palloo told Xtra he is currently in negotiation with someone in the area who is looking to keep the space as a nightclub. Barn II?
