The Kensington Roof Gardens have closed after over 35 years, as owner Virgin struggles to make a profit. The Roof Gardens have released the following statement:
In an ever changing London market The Kensington Roof Gardens have stood the test of time, but in the face of unpredictable market conditions and a challenge to remain profitable, sadly we can confirm we have closed our doors.
Jon Brown, managing director for The Roof Gardens commented: “For over 35 years The Roof Gardens has showcased top DJs and live musical talent as well as hosting numerous events, parties, award ceremonies, weddings and dinners in our award winning restaurant Babylon.
The time has now come for us to hang up our dancing shoes, and take off our gardening gloves, but one thing’s for sure and that is The Roof Gardens will continue to be one of London’s most spectacular and extraordinary landmarks and we look forward to seeing what’s next for this beautiful venue.”
