Coronavirus has struck hard.
Landlords of the Beaufort Street institution don’t want The Flying Scotsman to renew the lease.
In a statement on their Facebook page
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.
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
The hits keep coming as the coronavirus pandemic continues to have a devastating effect on Perth businesses. Perhaps this will only be the start of such announcements in the weeks and possibly months to come.
