THE future of Chicago Rock is unclear after the company which runs the popular Barnsley bar went into administration.

Atmosphere Bars and Clubs manages 24 premises - including the one on Wellington Street.

Financial consultants Deloitte were appointed to take over the running of the business on Tuesday but a spokesman said the bar will remain open while the search for a buyer takes place.

"Unfortunately, as a consequence of cash flow problems, the decision was taken by the directors of Atmosphere Bars and Clubs to place the company into administration," he said.

"We're continuing to trade the business and all venues remain open whilst seeking a sale as a going concern.”
