Dance Information

The Ennismore Arms was a public house on the Kingston House estate and Ennismore Gardens in Knightsbridge, a green, dual-character area within the western limits of the City of Westminster in London.

In the 1840s, development began (on the site of the recently demolished Kingston House), with the construction of houses on Princes Gate and the east side of Ennismore Gardens, as well as a public house, the Ennismore Arms which was the first building of this scheme: built in 1845-7.

The pub stood at the southern end of Ennismore Mews, which ran behind the houses on the eastern side of Princes Terrace. Suffering bomb damage during World War II it was rebuilt by Watney's in the 1950s.

It closed in 2002 and was then demolished.
