Gavin Thomas, Kyd Douglas and Richard Askew opened the first BEAVERS BAR in St Johns, Woking (half an hour south of London) in December 1989. The bar made its name for being a lively entertainment venue during the nineties, and the boys opened a second BEAVERS BAR in Guildford town centre in 1997. In 2001 the business closed its doors after twelve years to allow the boys to follow independent careers.
