Worst news today was the confirmation that the tapas bar closes tomorrow…! Yep, 12 years I’ve sat at that table before every home game and it will be no more. Closing tmrw. The landlord upped the rent by 25% and it wasn’t sustainable as ongoing. Shame. Lord knows what I’ll do now. Maybe down at the wharf, Imperial road way. Chelsea harbour. But quite a walk to the ground. Could be an emergency, here!
All jokes aside, I like a restaurant, but with some ambiance. The tapas bar was perfect for that, and just two blocks south of the ground. Jose got quite emotional today. Big hugs & all that! He’ll be off to the Clapham branch – I think they still have 3 others. His rent was being upped from £120k to £150k p.a. Too much. It isn’t that busy in there non match days. It’s quite a way from Sloane square end of the kings road. Shame.
We may check out the wharf, as i said.
