Swampy Johns Showbar opening next month

An entertainment led concept

American diner and showbar Swampy Johns will open in Lincoln next month.

As previously reported, the entertainment led concept will open in the former Status premises on Silver Street in September.

Work has been underway at the venue on Silver Street.


The venue will boast live entertainment every weekend night including young band Swampy Johns Junkyard Dogs and individual live musicians, who will play on the main stage and from three live podiums around the bar.

There will also be entertainment on Friday nights from “some of the best known talent on the circuit,” the bar promises.
