First branding appears for Madisons restaurant in place of Strawberry Moons nightclub in Maidstone

The first branding for a new restaurant and rooftop bar has appeared at the home of a former Maidstone nightclub.

Strawberry Moons in Gabriel's Hill closed its doors back in 2017, but is now being renovated into something quite different.

Plans for a bottom floor restaurant, a second floor bar and a rooftop terrace at the former nightspot were given the green light and now the first signage for the new venue, named Madisons, can be seen from the street, with an opening date understood to be just weeks away.

The planning application also detailed hardwood doors, a front canopy and the installation of kitchen equipment at the back of the building.

The council previously approved plans for a covered seating area and a bar for outdoor drinking as well.

The first floor will be home to the restaurant which will include a bar, a small stage and a kitchen where customers can watch their food being prepared.

Going up the stairs, guests will be met by another bar area with seating booths and a cloakroom, as well as the toilets.

Up another flight and visitors will be able to enjoy panoramic views of the town from the rooftop terrace bar.

Earlier this year, KentOnline took a look back at some of the fond memories created at Strawberry Moons over the years.

Bosses have told customers on social media the new venue will open before Christmas and a date of December 20 has been suggested elsewhere online.

Madisons has been contacted for comment.
