Hustlers and the Loft opened in 2021, it promised to be ‘Ibiza in Newcastle’, with world-class DJays every night! Apparently filling the void that was left by the unsuccessful Eden

It became evident in December 2022 that it was not going as planned. The Loft announced diversification and it begin to host fitness classes… The FatBoy Slims were replaced with Fatboys Slimming

In May 2023 administrators were called in and, The Loft and Hustler closed for the final time

The cause of the collapse gets little murky, tough trading conditions? Energy costs? Parent company being investigated by the FCA?

Whatever the reason behind its closure 68 people have lost their jobs and a local ‘entrepreneur’ might lose his 60 racehorses
