"Thank you for your unending support in Brisbane."

Brisbane favourite venue Crowbar has today announced it is closing "for the foreseeable future".

The news was confirmed in a statement posted on the Brunswick Street venue's Facebook page today.

"Over eight years poured into Brisbane's live music scene, with 7,000 plus bands on our stages," the statement reads.

"We've shared thousands of gigs, good times, beers, shots, singalongs, laughs, hugs, tears and triumphs with friends from all around the world.

"These are trying times for the music and entertainment industries and the future is uncertain for a lot of us, but we hope to be back in Brisbane sometime with a very loud bang."

Crowbar Sydney, which opened in 2018, will continue operating.
