“It seems the landlord does not want us to renew the lease.”

This was the sad message posted by The Flying Scotsman on Monday morning.

The Beaufort Street institution was also home to Caboose, Defectors, Velvet Lounge and Grumpies.

“To everyone that has supported our venues; The Flying Scotsman, Caboose, Defectors, Velvet Lounge and Grumpies, we want to thank you all for being a part of our family and culture,” it read.

“During these tough times, it seems the landlord does not want us to renew the lease.

“We will hold on to our memories of the Scotto forever and what an amazing ride it has been over the last twenty years.

“Again, from all the team, we want to say thank you for making the Scotto a place where everyone felt welcome and had a good time.

“Stay safe out there!

“Love the Scotto, Caboose and Grumpies crew.”

Le sigh.
