SOUND OF THE CITY: BABBLE BAR OPENS ITS DOORS

Babble Bar: so good they launched it twice. The Mayfair-established watering hole, sister of the LateNightLondon website, opened the doors to its new City location last Friday – and the celebrations continued last night. The venue was full to capacity with City workers and burlesque dancers wandering cocktail in hand between Babble’s four bars: the private booths of the Crimson Club, the cushion-splattered Upstairs Terrace, the elegant mahogany-decked Crystal Bar and The Boudoir, where risqué photos plaster the walls. That’s as much detail as The Capitalist can go into on that, you understand, but pop along to 45 Old Broad Street to see for yourself.
