The Big Bop is shutting its doors just weeks after another Queen West hotspot broke similar news.
The Big Bop is a three-floor live music venue located at Queen and Bathurst. It has played host to acts that include Estero, Billy Talent and the Misfits. On Dec 9, managers posted a note to the bar’s Myspace asking promoters to book bands for one final show before the lights go out Jan 31.
News of The Big Bop’s demise comes less than a month after reports that another historic hipster joint, the Cameron House, had been put up for sale. The Cameron House has been a hangout for artists and musicians since 1981. The owners are asking $2.9 million for the property, the bar and nine apartments over the pub.
