Rolling Stones' Bill Wyman closes London restaurant Sticky Fingers after 32 years

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

Sticky Fingers, which takes its name from the band's 1971 album, opened in High Street Kensington in 1989 and is decorated with rock and roll memorabilia.

The restaurant was sold to Maxwell's Restaurant Group in 2000, with Wyman retaining a share of the business. However, Maxwell's went into liquidation in December after struggling with the impact of the pandemic.

Posting on social media, Wyman 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."

At the restaurant guests sat in American-style diner booths and were served a menu including burgers, milkshakes, chicken wings and racks of ribs.

Other Maxwell's sites included Café de Paris, one of London's oldest nightclubs, which has been taken over by Ibiza club operator Pacha Group.

The Caterer has contacted Maxwell's liquidator Live Recoveries for further comment.
