The Community Conundrum

Chelsea locals bemoan the loss of their community gathering point

Last night at The Enterprise in Walton Street, a group of bereft locals gathered to hold a wake in honour of the demise of their favoured meeting spot, La Brasserie.

 

No one present denied the fact that there are plenty of other bars and restaurants where one can go for a drink, but what all agreed was that they had lost was the community spirit of what was literally their “spiritual home”. What they had taken from them was a place where one could walk in happy or sad and find a friendly face and someone to chat to.

Bars like, for example, those at The Botanist and Colbert are perfect for tourists and business assignations, but given their crowded nature and design, they don’t have the ambience that made La Brasserie the perfect meeting spot for friendly banter. It will be missed and now the question on everyone’s lips is this: “Where will Chelsea’s answers to Cheers go next?”

  1. I know what you mean entirely. I am struggling to think. The Ivy Kings Road is certainly lovely but it is more of a restaurant than bar. The Enterprise is always so crowded. Colbert and The Botanist are for tourists. The Bluebird is like a barn. The Admiral Codrington is dark and dingy. Barts is small and for kids. Jak’s is bland and boring. Where? Where? Where?

  2. Again I’ll tell you all what you need to know: Pelt the landlords with rotten tomatoes and drive out the scumbag Arab supercar drivers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They have killed the character of London and you need to make your PM Tessa May MAKE BRITAIN GREAT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • ……too small John. I like PJ s but it is not spacious enough. I’ve been going to La Bras for 30 years (as an out of towner)….I will seriously miss it. A curse upon those landlords and all of their houses!

  3. @JacksonsPollocks. If the place is so good, why is it closing down now? Don’t know specifically how much the intended rent increase was for La Bras, but here in NYC, rents can be doubled, tripled, quadrupled. What business can survive that, except large chain stores and banks?
