I was wondering how many of us have checked out
It is quite a change from 'The Townhouse as it was formerly known, which attracted a fairly old crowd, with sing-alongs at the weekend. It was not my cup of 'rosy lee'.
Anyway, I rather like the new Libertine. Simple decor, stripped back, lots of wood,so it seems bigger than before. There is a comfy loungey area at the back with sofas, and a big space at the front. I was there on Saturday night, and this front space was very lively - with a 20's, 30's bunch dancing away. (Well it was midnight, and there was a good DJ).
I liked the music - covering 4 decades - so Nina Simone would be followed by something 'of the mo'. Very friendly staff - I think being on Great Suffolk Street
, away from Borough High Street
means that they will be getting locals, not one-time visitors.
Have you been?
Does Great Suffolk Street
need this pub?
Will it become the house pub for those new flats on Southwark Bridge Road
