Owners say it would take millions to restore Black Cap


Owners have said that investors have an opportunity to restore the LGBT+ pub, but it would require a great amount of money. The opportunity to restore Camden’s Black Cap pub, which owners say will cost £1 million, is being marketed as a chance to recreate the pub as one of the primary entertaining venues for the LGBT community. This is the first time since the bar closed in April 2015 that the venue has been marketed as a chance to be reopened keeping the status of LGBT venue. The owner, Kicking Horse Ltd, had previously sought to sell the venue as an opportunity to develop it into a restaurant, but such a decision caused mass protests. Those in support of the venue re-opening as an LGBT+ venue will take to the Camden street to sing songs and demonstrate against the closure of this particular venue and all the LGBT venues in general Speaking to the Ham High, organisers said: “We want it back, the LGBTQ+ community want it back, Camden, London and many people from around the world want it back.” A member of ‘#WeAreBlackCap’, Alex Green, told the paper that the group wants “less flats more heels”. He refers to planning applications to turn the venue into flats which were rejected twice, once in 2013 and once in 2015.
