BULLETIN: Hugh’s Room bankrupt, says publicist/booker Flohill

Richard Flohill tweet from January 8, 2017.

Veteran publicist and talent booker Richard Flohill, who has worked closely with west-end music venue Hugh’s Room since its opening in April of 2001, tweeted this morning that the owners have “apparently declared bankruptcy.”

The club’s website calendar indicates that two shows scheduled for last week and another that was planned for Tuesday have been cancelled, but sill lists several other events coming up later in the month.

The room located at 2261 Dundas St. W., just south of Bloor Street has featured iconic international talents as well as been a showcase venue for a multitude of local acts over the past 16 years and was dubbed “a Canadian version of Austin City Limits” by a Toronto Life article.

“This is sad sad news for this so-called “music city,” Flohill added in his tweet.
