Public Closes Down?

by Chelsea Girl on May 15, 2012

There’s been plenty of tweets today about Public closing down with immediate effect, after losing its  court battle with the local Kensington & Chelsea residents.

Can anyone verify if this is true? I thought that the court matters were resolved months ago, so I’m slightly surprised.

If this is true, how sad are you to see Public go?

*UPDATE: This rumour seems to be true. The nightclub owners had lost their appeal to stay open past 12.30am and so took the decision to close their doors for good. This comes after Public were forced to endure earlier closing hours after complaints from local residents.*

I think it’s sad that Public’s gone! Come on, was it really causing such a massive nuisance or it just a sad case of Nimbyism? Does anyone who lives nearby have a take on this? :-)

I’m really sad that Public’s closed, it was one of my fave haunts. I heard rumours that many of the A&E admissions in the local hospital had been coming in with Public door stamps on their arms which is why Public were facing more issues than the neighbouring Embargoes :(
