At last! Since 2015 this Holland Park icon of louche 1970s living – an intriguing subterranean labyrinth of differently-styled chambers – has promised that it will reopen, and it finally looks set to happen in September 2019, in time for its 50th year in business. Its updated looks are unknown as yet, but they have recruited a good chef in the form of Shay Cooper, who held a Michelin star at his previous gig, The Goring.

‘Coming Soon 2018’ is the message on the website of this once-famous, old Holland Park classic – a famously sexy 1970s subterranean tangle of rooms, where rock stars once partied hard, and where Prince Charles had his stag night back in the day. Apparently, it’s been just-about-to-reopen ever since it closed for a refurb in spring 2016 – we continue to maintain a listing in the hope rather than the expectation that this is correct.

For the third year, this seductive 48-year-old – a lush, subterranean warren in a gorgeous Holland Park street that was an A-lister magnet in the ’70s and ’80s – remains closed, with its website promising a forthcoming re-launch for which the date is perennially pushed-out (currently it reads ‘we hope to open in September 2017’). We don’t know the backstory here, but hopefully it will re-appear one day as promised.
