House bosses in talks with insolvency firm

Friday 19th October 2012

Bosses of a nighclub which opened less than three months ago after a £1m refurbishment held discussions with an insolvency practitioner yesterday.


House nightclub and Boutique Bar, formerly Escapade, which opened its doors on Wellington Street in the summer promising ''a fresh clubbing experience'', is believed to owe creditors thousands of pounds.


The club is being run by Mat Moriarty and Bill Surtees.


Steve Oddi, an insolvency case manager at O'Hara and Co, based in the Wakefield area, confirmed that he had met Mr Surtees yesterday.


He said: ''The situation is that we have been asked to advise them on various potential issues so they can assess their options and we have left it at that. We are not acting for them and have not been formally instructed.


''I can't say what the directors intend to do.''


He was unable to say whether the club would trade this weekend.


Neither Mr Surtees nor Mr Moriarty responded to Chronicle requests for comment.
