The Grade II listed site dates to the 1930’s and was run by Richard Branson’s Virgin for 37 years, before closing in 2018 after struggling to make a profit.
Landlord CKL has jointly appointed P-Three and Cushman & Wakefield to find a tenant for the 14,511 sq ft space and 0.6 acre rooftop garden.
It says the vision is to create a ‘sunrise to sunset offer’ providing an ‘evolving experience’.
“The character, heritage and location of the space make it perfect for a high quality operator to create something quite unique,” says Thomas Rose, co-founder of P-Three.
"With the gardens as an integrated element of the overall experience, this is without doubt one of the best opportunities in Europe for a leisure operator.”
Under Virgin the site was home to the Babylon restaurant, which held two AA Rosettes.
