Chorlton bar calls in the liquidators

Abode parent firm going under but bar still trading

Published on September 23rd 2010.

Chorlton bar calls in the liquidators

The firm that owns Abode, a bar situated in the centre of Chorlton, has gone into liquidation.

Blackpool-based insolvency firm Campbell, Crossley & Davis is acting as liquidator and a meeting of creditors is set to take place tomorrow (Friday) at The Rhinewood Country House Hotel in Glazebrook, Warrington.

A spokesperson for the firm would not reveal any details relating to the liquidation. When Confidential called Abode, the phone number was not in operation, although a message was left with sister bar The Lounge on Barlow Moor Road.

Abode is still open, however, according to local insiders. “It’s still trading,” said one. “I’d heard they’d been struggling but they haven’t closed down.”

Abode, on Wilbraham Road near The Nook and Electrik, is owned by Abode Ventures Ltd, led by director Paul Heathcote - not the chef of the same name who owns Olive Press – and his wife Michelle.

The latest set of abbreviated accounts for the firm, filed this summer and covering the year to September 2009, showed liabilities of £105,000. No turnover figure is given.
