Fancy a pint of London Underground beer in a London Underground pub to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the London Underground?
For a few days next month you will be able to.
Part of the London Design Festival, a “pop-up” bar will be created in the former post office sorting building on New Oxford Street.
The bar will be decorated by a company I recently mentioned who have recreated replica tube station tiles. Furniture will be produced and supplied by British brand Modus and upholstered in a selection of new woven textile designs inspired by moquette seating patterns.
The beverages are being provided by the Camden Town Brewery, who will install a micro-brewery on site and have already produced a range of Metropolitan Line branded bottled beers.
I just hope they splash out and serve the pints in these. even if they have to do a bag search of every person leaving the pub to stop thefts.
The Camden Town Bar will be open from Thur 19th Sept to Sun 22nd Sept.
- Thurs 10am-8pm
- Fri 10am-7pm
- Sat. 10am-6pm
- Sun 10am-4pm
…there will also be a number of other bars in the building, but who cares about them 😉
Update: Turns out that entry is by ticket only — which is not that obvious on the website. Register for free tickets HERE.
