Little Nan's Cocktail Club, 2 Tyrwhitt Road

The venue for Little Nan's Cocktail Club has been confirmed as the first floor of The Talbot pub. They say:

Soft Launch will be the 23rd & 24th May with the Official Launch shindigs happening on the 30th & 31st May. We will be open every Friday & Saturday from 5pm - 11pm for 6 Weeks. If you like my cocktails & feel at home in my Brockley Victorian Parlour room, then we will stay for Longer!

The Talbot's a fine pub, which lacks a little character. Little Nan's oozes character and knows that Brockley is the perfect place to take their brand of nightlife. This is an asset swap that GSK and Novartis would approve of.

Well who would have known that!

@Nick So this a merger or an acquisition?

Brockley Nick said...

Neither. It's an innovative new model, designed to exploit synergies without having to pay bankers' fees.

Jon from SE4 said...

Wished it was somewhere more central as this venue isn't that much closer than their own bar in Deptford. Still, better than nowt I guess. I will definitely visit.


Here's hoping someone else would take up the challenge and open a cocktail bar on Brockley Road.

Was hoping it could be closer to the Telegraph Hill side but ho hum, we'll still make it down there!

Brockley Nick said...

Depends where you live I guess. But yes, Brockley Road could do with a new bar too. Fortunately, there's one coming to Crofton Park very shortly.

Not rising to it...

Spoken like a true PR Man ;)

It's only about 10 min walk away from Lewisham station. Good news for the locals there.

For some reason, I don't get to do IR work...

Brockley Nick said...

I've been saying similar about Brockley Market - thousands of people moving in to flats being built just down the hill ought to be a major opportunity.

Tim said...

Just to confirm; we are all seeing the old lady with the hat on, right? (in the poster). Genius

Rising To It said...

The Talbot is literally in no way in New Cross. Doh

kol said...

Amazed that no-one has taken over the Albion really. Think of all the thirsty market-goers having to resort to drinking tinnies on the memorial lawn.

fossilg said...

NO I can't see it? Really? Can everyone else see it? reminds me of those magic eye 3d books people would stare at in the 80s to see images emerge - i could literally never see anything except a random pattern and was always gutted.

NAT said...

Some hilarious comments on here about The Talbot not being central. I mean you moaners do get out of your jim jams sometimes and go to work in far flung places like Canary Wharf and The City.

NAT said...

I thought I saw it at first, because someone suggested it was there. Damned if I can see other than a fine hand, now that you've made your objection. Must remember not to be gulled by 'Jesus in a slice of burned toast' types ...yet again..

terrencetrentderby said...

Yeah but I'm not walking half an hour to New Cross for a pint.

NAT said...

Perhaps you should; And leave cocktail bar's in Brockley well alone.

Adamrb said...

Talbot is not New Cross. Not sure why the comments on every article seem to end in "but that's not on Brockley Road". Chances are, if you're reading this site, then you're within a 15 minute walk of the Talbot. Just be thankful new and exciting things are happening in the borough. Street Feast will also be great, although I imagine plenty of the 'central Brockley' obsessed won't venture to the other side of hilly fields.

Brockley Nick said...

I can't see it, but I'm like Silent Bob when confronted with a Magic Eye poster.

terrencetrentderby said...

My mother. She just gave you one ;)

anon said...

I think the point is that a lot of things are happening on the fringes of SE4, but there are so many vacant shops and areas near the station - we desperately need a bit more vibrancy around the centre.

Rabid Badger said...

What's wrong with Gulen High Street?

brockleyman said...

Maybe if the landlords reduce the rents with those empty shops they own around Brockley Cross more businesses will open!

Rosemary Fraser said...

Well, I was brought up in Tyrwhitt Road, Brockley for the first 32 years of my life and my father's treat was a pint each evening on his way home from work in London at the Talbot Pub, at the bottom of our road. It's lovely to know that it's still there and interesting to read about "Little Nan's Cocktail Club". I remember a small beer garden next to the pub.

I live on tyrwhitt road and I avoid the talbot like the plagues, prefer the pubs in new Cross .

Royshirttugger said...
