Surely you need prior employment experience and some hospitality and / or business education or training to be a success, but what would I know? I’m not the entrepreneurial type. Now, in April 2009, less than a year after opening, The Wick is closed and the space is being redeveloped as a bar.

    I noticed this on Sat night!
    The new window dressings I mean, and there is now a mural going up on the right hand side wall!
    I craved crepes on my bday! I went and had churros and gelati instead…

    The mural down the side of the night cat is coming along nicely as well.
