Picture of the Week – Bye Bye.. London

That there is now a Kuwaiti restaurant called ‘Bye Bye.. London’ on the Kings Road about sums up how the rot truly has set in suggests Matthew Steeples

 

‘Prime Central London’ (as estate agents somewhat arrogantly call it), as I’ve said before, used to be a city where people bought to live. It then became a place where people bought to let and now, in my mind, it’s a place where people buy to leave.

 

Walking around Belgravia and Knightsbridge at night, one finds the lights aren’t on and nobody’s home; here is a city that is losing its character and here is a place where longstanding establishments are being wiped out. Greedy landlords, seizing on the incoming cash of oligarchs and Chinese billionaires, have trebled rents in such places as Walton Street and institutions such as Como Lario and La Brasserie are gone also.

 

Instead, sent in by a beady eyed subscriber, we now have what is pictured above: A restaurant serving ‘Kuwaiti cuisine’ on Chelsea’s Kings Road called ‘Bye Bye.. London.’ You couldn’t make it up.

  1. London will eat itself has never been so apt. It will truly be a sorrowful time if prime parts of London start to recreate Dubai in them large scale.
