Bill Wyman closes Sticky Fingers after 32 years

Former Rolling Stones bassist, Bill Wyman has announced the closure of his London restaurant Sticky Fingers after 32 years of trading.

The venue which first opened in 1989 was decorated with rock and roll memorabilia and was named after the band’s 1971 album. 

The restaurant, which is located on High Street Kensington, was acquired by the now liquidated Maxwell’s Restaurant Group in 2000 – with Wyman retaining a smaller share in the business at the time of the deal. 

In a social media post, the musician blamed the Covid-19 pandemic for the venue’s closure- noting that this “difficult time for many restaurants and businesses around the world”. 

He said: “This is a difficult time for many restaurants and businesses around the world. My heart goes out to all those affected by Covid. I also have sad news to report that my beloved Sticky Fingers restaurant has closed for the last time because of the pandemic.

“I would like to thank everyone who has supported Sticky’s, both customers and staff, over a wonderful 32 years of business.”
