From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Walkabout in Durham (now closed).

Walkabout is a chain of Australian themed bars operating in the UK. The brand was owned by Regent Inns, which also controls the Bar Risa/Jongleurs chain. In October 2009, the company went into administration. There are approximately fifty Walkabout venues in the UK, comprising of forty eight pubs, three hotels, one venue for backpackers and a nightclub. In keeping with the theme, many of the barstaff employed at Walkabouts are Australian. The food menu offers also Australian themed food such as kangaroo burgers and steaks, as well as springbok meat from South Africa.

Dual branded nightclubs

Walkabout in Bradford

Like the Bar Risa/Jongleurs chain, most Walkabouts offer a dual branded nightclub/late licence night with another nightclub operating in the same building, for example The Limelight in Shaftesbury Avenue. The two parts can be operated as separate entities or together, with Walkabout playing cheesy music or hosting live bands and the other club playing harder dance music. The most recent of these is the newly opened Walkabout in Leicester, on the old Bar Risa site.

Walkabouts which are twinned with a Jongleurs Comedy Club include Edinburgh, Leicester, Watford, Glasgow and Birmingham.
