Welcome to Dunbar Legion and Club,( Up the Close). http://www.uptheclosedunbar.co.uk/ The legion now runs as 2 individual entities, the Branch, which is the charatable side of Dunbar Legion, and the Club, which runs the business side of Dunbar Legion.
We used this opportunity to name the club "Up the Close" simply to allow new residents and Visitors to find us, as our gem of a club has been hidden away for too many years up the legion close, We are now going to be visable to everyone and we are open to the Community of Dunbar and District, and also to any visitors who want to come in to watch any of the 6 tv’s in our Sports bar, play snooker, pool or darts or just have a quite drink with family and friends, or watch Sport on the big 150″ screen in the main hall (when available).
