Following last week’s announcement of the closure of Gaydar radio, its owners have today also announced the immediate closure of Profile and Lo-Profile bar and club on Wardour Street, Soho.
This is hugely disappointing news and a frankly dreadful start to 2013. Profile celebrated its fifth anniversary last year and Lo-Profile’s nights such as “Society” and “Playtime” have proved to be hugely popular and a very welcome alternative to clubs in Vauxhall. Soho has lost a smart, well-appointed venue that attracted a good crowd without trying too hard to be cool.
Our thoughts are with the staff affected. we hope there is at least the chance of some of the nights finding new homes and 2013 can only, we hope, get better!
