Introducing The Libertine
Wednesday 28 September 2022
Set in the immense vaults underneath the splendour of The Royal Exchange, The Libertine is going to be the new home of indulgence in the heart of the City of London. We take a look at the details of a very exciting new opening...
Located on the site where the very first royal alcohol licence in Britain was granted, this brand new London venue is steeped in hedonism and mischief. The Libertine is a modern revival of those free spirited times, with spaces for drinking, dining and unwinding well into the night, away from the prudish prying eyes. The bustle and opportunity around the old Royal Exchange, built in 1571, attracted merchant, heralds and rogues from across the city and beyond. Once the day’s work was done (and often before), the assembly would partake of boisterous ‘tippling’ in the vaults under the Exchange, at one point leading to the closing of the tavern housed there.
The vaults beneath The Royal Exchange house a new fortune. Guests will step through the unassuming door on Cornhill and down a spiral staircase where lies a den of spirited talk and lively tippling; introducing The Libertine. Under vaulted arches which once guarded the spices, silks and gold that enriched London in years gone by sits an impressive bar worthy of the modern City.
The smaller spaces on offer at The Libertine can seat up to 100 guests, and the private dining room, which can seat 16, are both available for private hire over the festive period. There's also ‘The Whiskey Vault’, a stylish private space for up to 30 people standing which can be hired exclusively. Guests can book all 3 areas for up to 200 diners for larger events, with festive set menus as well as bowl and canapé dishes. Christmas has never tasted so good! Overall, they can host celebrations of up to 450 for a standing reception and will work with you to create a bespoke package that perfectly fits the needs of your event, whether it’s the whole company party or a smaller team gathering.
The venue will be opening in October and are welcoming last minute Christmas party bookings. Set festive menus start from £42.50pp for three courses, with extensive bowl food, canapé and drinks menus on offer.
