This morning the sad news came through the social media sites that PUBLIC Nightclub in London's Chelsea, is closing down. In fact, it isn't even closing...it has already closed. PUBLIC lost a court case early this morning against the local council, after the council wanted them to cut back their hours from 2:30am to 12:30am. The negative result of the court appeal means they must shut down immediately.
They announced on Facebook this morning;
'Dear Friends, We are extremely sad to announce that PUBLIC will be shutting down effective immediately after a negative result from our appeal process against the council to cut back our hours to 12.30am. We cannot thank everyone enough for all their support since we opened and hope everyone will remember PUBLIC with affection. We certainly will. Love team PUBLIC'
PUBLIC was the brain child of Guy Pelly - the man behind Mahiki, and after it's opening in 2010 it became the place to see and be seen; with it's celebrity crowd, photobooth, cool New York Warehouse style interior, and fairground horses. Winner of numerous club awards it was the favourite of the likes of Prince Harry, and Professor Green even performed there just last week!
I know I will definitely miss this awesome club! As many of you know from my review back in February, it hit my spot, and the fairground horses became my guilty pleasure.
Thanks for the memories, PUBLIC...
