Brooklyn Bowl London, once described by Rolling Stone as “one of the most incredible places on earth,” had to be closed to enable building works on The O2’s entertainment district.

According to the announcement on the venue’s website, operators are working with event organizers to relocate confirmed shows, which include The Felice Brothers and tribute nights for David Bowie and Bob Marley.

“Our hope is that following the completion of the building work for the future designer outlet village at The O2, we will be able to return,” the announcement reads.

However, according to IQ Magazine, the closure is permanent. A notice on the venue’s website says “Closed Until Further Notice.”

The 1,200-capacity Brooklyn Bowl London offers, like its New York-based namesake, live music alongside high-end bowling alley amenities. It opened inside The O2 complex in 2014.
