Nightjar Carnaby venue previous rich tapestry

The Kingly Court venue, Weil said, “will be a little more polished than the original”, but added that the site’s history of live music appealed to the pair.

“Though it spent a couple of decades as Ben Sherman’s stock room, it previously existed as a series of really iconic music venues: it was London’s first black-owned music club in the Thirties and Fourties, The Blue Lagoon Club, kicked off the beep craze in the Fifties under Ronnie Scott at Club Eleven, and subsequently hosted artists such as Bob Marley, The Who, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Obviously there is a lot to live up to, but knowing what a rich tapestry has adorned the space in the past is very inspiring,” Weil added.
