It’s been some time since we walked through the stone pillars of Chambers, as the venue has been shut for nine whole months of refurb. Last month saw it open its doors again, complete with every surface apparently renewed. The principle arrangement is the same with the famous long bar but the venue has a new first floor overlooking the dance floor and lots of new feature lighting and floral lightbox walls. After his strong support at Weekender, Pat Sharp was there on-stage for the launch. It’s incredible that somehow he can get away with playing the Cheeky Girls and it somehow feels OK. If you’ve not been already, make sure you check it out this month. It was always a cosy place to go in the winter.
