Business overview

We are Rafferty's Bar on Baker Street, a public house and live music venue located at the heart of Middlesbrough Town Centre.

My name is Stuart Olsen and I own and run Rafferty's with my partner Leanne, my son Sebastian and a small team of staff, our resident musician/barman Reece Vidamour, the wonderful Zoe (The one with green/blue hair) and new recruit Matthew.

We are an independent business, I have working some of Middlesbrough's iconic venues, in 2017 I felt it was time to go out on my own. It hasn't been easy, the pandemic didn't help, but we have built in 4 years a fabulous customer base, met some wonderful people and yes it is hard work but it is rewarding.

Located on Baker Street, some may have thought of a Sherlock Holmes themed name. However, we are a little bit different and as a music venue, there was only one name that jumped out 'Rafferty's', Gerry's iconic song seemed fitting.

We are a community based venue, a social hangout and our goal is to bring people together to share music and have a positive experience.

Music is a particular love of ours, we have on open mic every Tuesday from 8pm, we put on a live acoustic singer every Friday and all our listings can be found on our website at raffertysbar.co.uk

We are big fans of Middlesbrough FC and are within walking distance of the Riverside Stadium, we attract fans and offer live big screen football with BT Sport before 3pm kick offs, then, live music. At 8pm every Saturday we have our resident and guest DJs bringing a range of music from retro house, 80's, disco, RnB, soul, rock and roll, indie and cult classics we play a bit of everything to bring joy to our customers.

With a central location of Middlesbrough, we are placed ideally near the Holiday Inn Express, Travelodge, Premier Inn and Jury Inn, so if you are visiting for work and want a bit of music and drinks during the week, or you are here for the weekend to let your hair down, Rafferty's is your ideal venue.
