People are invited to take a sneak-peak of a new pub which will reopen as a “much loved” community venue.

Hundreds were devastated when The Bohemia, in North Finchley, unexpectedly shut last year – but after a long running campaign, the London Brewing Company stepped in to save it.

The new pub is set to open in June, but new landlords Dan and Senan are holding an open evening tomorrow night.

After gaining access to the empty building in late September, a dozen squatters opened it to the community, running workshops and events including yoga, salsa dancing and film nights.

But they were later evicted in a dramatic raid which included bailiffs and policemen.

Tomorrow’s event will be held from 7pm to 9pm.

'Hundreds were devastated'?!!!

Come on times series, let's not give the few local loud mouths who made such a fuss when this pub closed such an exaggerated description! If hundreds really drank there it wouldn't have gone out of business, and as for 'devastated', if you actually think about what that word means it would not describe the mild disappointment some people had when the pub closed. What is it with exaggeration these days? Do journalists study English before getting a job? Obviously not as the meaning of devastated is to be in an overwhelming state of shock or grief. If anyone was in such a state they need their heads examined.

Rog T says...

I helped organise a charity gig last year for cancer charities at the Bohemia. Hundreds attended and plans for follow up events were being made. After the closure and reopening by occupy I also helped organise several well attended events. Pubs are pivotal parts of the London music scene. Music exports generate huge revenues for the UK and contrary to the previous commenter venues are loved. The Bohemia was clossed due to issues with parent company and the lease not financial failure. Ill informed comment is not really helpful. I for one am delighted that Bohemia is reopening. The fact a new Landlord is taking it on displays the lie that the business was not sustainable. People do not invest money in pubs uness they expect a decent return
