Marston's Brewery pour cold water on Taunton nightclub hopes
PROSPECTS of another night club opening at the former Que Pasa site in Taunton were dismissed this week.
Marston’s Brewery, which owns the building in High Street, poured cold water on hopes the site would be turned into a late night venue, despite talks last year to re-open the building.
There were talks of the venue being called L8 after a Facebook page was launched to “get Taunton back on the nightlife scene”.
Work was hoped to start last October before being put back to January and now Marston’s says there are ‘no immediate plans’ for the venue.
People posted their comments on the County Gazette Facebook page as to what they thought the building should be transformed into.
Trish Caller, of Taunton Comedy Festivals, said: “How about somewhere for the over 30s? Proper music we love and recognise from when we were youngsters.”
Other ideas included sheltered accommodation for the homeless over the winter, a horse riding centre for the disabled, a restaurant and a youth club or internet cafe.
Ross Hunter said he wanted the venue to be turned into an indoor paintball centre, while Tammie Tremain Rose hoped it could be an indoor play area for children.
Zerin Lali added: “As long as it isn’t a betting shop or charity shop I don’t care.”
Steve Clarke said Taunton needed a live music venue, “a place that would attract not just local musicians but well-known artists as well. National and international acts”.
