Any news on the old Natwest bank and what they are possibly going to do with the building. It's such a beautiful building and could be something stunning.

From a City of London Corporation document published today:

Quote:
Tenant has vacated 185 Tower Bridge Road and strategy being considered for the building and adjacent vacant land (both Bridge House Estates). The City is aware that LB Southwark planners are opposed to residential on this site. Interest so far for hotel or restaurant use so a disposal of a long leasehold interest is likely to maximise value.

So, this would mean that I would be refused entry if I came in wearing my (very clean) jeans (my default dress code)??
So, the toffs and those wearing a special outfit for the occasion are allowed in?
I find this sort of attitude repulsive.
Shameful..!

I have no connection with Masq, but Iím inclined to think that anyone wearing clean clothes, (jeans included), would not be discouraged from entering the place, particularly in these times of regular lockdowns, and disappearing revenues.
I donít think that many guys wear tuxedos when going out for a social drink anyway, and the word toffs is a tad passť now surely.
It was hardly prehistoric times, when the decent watering holes of Bermondsey, (many now defunct), were filled with dockers, Black Cab drivers, printers and lightermen on weekends, most looking like theyíd steeped off the pages of GQ, and their wives and girlfriends like Vogue models.
