After half a year under its new management, Don Pedros has been closed. Not a lot of information on it, but posts on the Facebook page talked about debts incurred by previous management (?). Since then there’s been a few “Save Don Pedros” nights, but in vain.
This is sad for Woodstock – which needs vibey venues – although there had been numerous complaints about Don Pedros holding live music nights when it’s liquor license did not allow this, and loud, rowdy behaviour by its patrons in the streets in early hours of the morning. Attempts by UWRA to engage with manager, Vernon Cupido, by email and letter were not responded to.
The Facebook posts from the Don Pedro’s page on Facebook were:
Sad sad news. Don Pedros has been forced to close its doors due to the fact that new management can’t pay debts incurred by the previous management. We apologise for any inconvenience. We hope that you’ll continue to party in the spirit of Don Pedros wherever you are…
