Ballarat has lost its second live music venue in a week after Babushka Bar announced it would close its doors.

The alternative Humffray Street venue announced last night that it would be closing down, however a date has not yet been set.

The post says it will still be hosting farewell gigs over “the next few months”.

Babushka has operated for almost six years and has played host to hundreds of musicians and various other acts.

It had previously set up a crowdfunding page to remain afloat in the wake of increasing financial pressure.

More to come.
