Fugu Boarded-Up

Update: Fugu was replaced by Zizzi Didsbury in November 2009

Although it has looked likely for several weeks, Fugu has now been boarded up. Fugu, which opened it's doors as a bar and Japanese restaurant in Didsbury after converting the closed Clock Tower public house had an excellent cocktail menu and friendly, comfortable atmosphere.

So the building that was once Squires continues to hold Didsbury businesses that fail and the Didsbury Dozen continues to lose it's original locations.

Such a large building in the central Didsbury is unlikely to stay empty for long, but the business that takes it on following on from Fugu has a lot of property space to fill and a history of failure to avoid.

The historic Didsbury building which is located on the corner of Wilmslow Road and Barlow Moor Road has no parking, limiting the opportunity for a hotel to take over the multiple large floors.
