Beneath the beaut beast of a building that is London's Royal Exchange, there lies a maze of vaults where traders once met for a tipple after a hard day's work. Those vaults are now making a comeback as The Libertine, a massive all-day drinking and dining space with room for a whopping 400 people.
This place is all about next-level booze - after all, the venue was the first place in London to serve alcohol with a Royal Licence. The menu features local spirits, beers and wines, plus a selection of high-end bottles from round the world. Cocktail-wise, expect riffs on the classics (we're eyeing up the Smoky Thyme Old Fashioned). And the bit that's really got us jazzed? It's the whisky vault, which will play host to loads of epic whisky pairing experiences. F*ck yeah.
You're also wanna get involved with the food, which features good old-fashioned luxury in the form of Jersey oysters, lobster gratin and a whole menu of dry-aged steaks and grande cuts. Great drinks, bangin' dishes and loads of space for groups? That's your Christmas work do sorted.
