Anyone know what's happening with re. the work here?
There was a recently granted aplpication next door for 'A change of use of part of the ground floor area at 42 Southwark Street from B1 and B8 to A3 to form a new link into existing A3 use on the ground floor at 40 Southwark Street. New proposed side service entrance off Maiden Lane.'
We've spoke to a couple of guys working there but they're being cagey. My wife's convinced it's going to be a strip-joint after getting a far-too-quick 'no idea' when she asked a 'large-breasted blonde Eastern European girl and her pimp' waiting oustaide this morning whether she knew either.
Would A3 usage cover a strip-joint? Wouldn't separate licenses be required? A strip-joint is so 'worst-case' as to be unlikely (he says, grasping the neatest wooden object), but how to explain the aforementioned cageyness of the people we asked? Other possibilites - a low-end Macdonalds/KFC type joint or Ferran Adrià's initial foray into the London restaurant scene (frantically licks aforementioned wooden object)
My wife has read the mind of the large breasted Eastern Europen woman (who is now staying with us after my kind offer of free board and lodging) with regard to this Saturday's lottery numbers and says 'there will be six of them' and also 'a bonus ball'. The latter sounds like insider information of the first water to these lay ears.
I promise I won't worry about it then.... But if I hear anything I will keep you posted even though I feel that I have to run the gaunlet from London Bridge Station to Southwark Bridge Road as it is.
Nice coversing with you.......I'm a 1st time user and find the forum an interesting and friendly site.
Has anyone heard what's happening to the tea/coffee shop/ museum in Southwark Street? Now that the Borough Market Trustees have forced the wonderfully eclectic Shipp's Tea Shop closure I thought that I'd pop round the corner to have a cuppa and listen to the pianist of fond memory in Bramah's,but I was confronted with a scene of desolation,just paint pots and emptiness.Woe was me !
Please,don't tell me that we're about to be blessed with yet another Starbucks ,etc.? We crave a little eccentricity these days !I went home quite depressed.
