Hammersmith Palais loses battle

Hammersmith Palais is to be demolished it has been announced.

Despite campaigns and petitions to save the building by getting it listed, Fulham and Hammersmith Council have approved property developers plans to knock the venue down to make it a restaurant and office block.

Fulham and Hammersmith councillor Lucy Ibimy said:

“We recognise the contribution the Palais has made to the west London music scene, but the golden days of the club are long gone.”

We’re gutted here at Crossfire, as we’d been to many a good show at the Palais. Sad faces all round.
