Well what a night it was the queer and the curious, the happy and the gay all gathered at Bar Zeus to watch the old girl go down one last time.

Yes Guys and Gals Bar Zeus which was previously the Dolphin and subsequently Wakefield’s Oldest LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender) venue closed its doors for the very last time in the wee hours of Sunday morning on 17th October 2010.

What a send off the place was given filled to the beams with customers new and old wishing the place and all the memories it holds a fond farewell. The drinks where flowing and the music was as ever keeping everyone in the party mood, despite a slight spooky musical glitch when one song the DJ was playing constantly skipped perhaps this was the old building having it’s last say on the nights events or perhaps the CD was just scratched!

The Night included cabaret from the likes of Stella, Sam Buca, Connie Lingus, Madame Nikaol, Miss Shurley and Drew-Ashlyn. Stella showcased her fabulous old school drag stage persona which frankly is missing in most drag acts these days. Sam Buca added some sparkle and perfect comedy timing and Connie Lingus proved that she is and forever will be Wakefield’s filthiest queen! It’s a great shame that other act’s at other places cant mix the old school with the new to the extent that these queens and this venue could.

Has the drinks begun to run out and the music faded the night was almost at a close, having had a night packed with fun and packed to the rafters it was a reminder of the days of old when pubs and clubs need not worry about survival.

There was just time for an emotional farewell from Nigel Palfrey the man in charge and with that the night was done and the doors where closed to the LGBT and its other Regulars for the very last time. This Venue will be sadly missed, with its perfect position and its friendly cosy atmosphere lets just hope that goodbyes are not forever, goodbyes are not the end they just mean we’ll miss you, Goodbye Zeus/Dolphin!
