THE owners of Fault and Blame have announced the basement bar has closed.

The pub was opened just over a year ago on West Regent Street by Dave Gormley and Caz, who previously ran the Variety bar.

The pair said they took inspiration from the underground bars of New York and Berlin.

In a statement the owners said: "We are very sad to announce that as of today Fault and Blame will no longer be open and would like to thank, from the bottom of our hearts everyone that’s loved and supported the bar as much as we did.

"A big thanks especially to our wonderful staff who I know will miss the wee place. We were so lucky to have them.

"All our love to everyone and we hope you have a lovely Christmas."
