Former Limelight nightclub sold for £8.25m

The former Limelight nightclub on London's Shaftesbury Avenue has been sold for £8.25m to a private investor.

Leisure property agent Shelley Sandzer advised the Danish owners who have owned the club since Regent Inns went in to administration in 2010.

The 12,000sq ft venue was originally a Welsh Presbyterian church dating from the 1890s, and was best known as the Limelight, which was at its height in the 1980s and early 1990s.

Commenting on the news Nick Weir, director at Shelley Sandzer, said: "There was an incredible amount of interest in this iconic building, which was once one of London's top nightclubs. It's likely that the new owner will look for a new operator pretty quickly; given the busy location of the building in the heart of London's West End entertainment district."
