There's a sign outside that says it's 'Temporarily Closed'. I can't see what else it says cos the print is too small to read from the bus.
This sign has gone. I noticed it a while back but wasn't sure which thread I'd posted on.

What's it gonna end up as? Any indication?
A pal of Jerry "Multi Millionaire" Knight posted here a while ago and said that they still intended to open the downstairs as a bar/restaurant. I have my doubts about the pub part.

Bar =/= pub. I can see them wanting a bar there tho - catering to the noveau Brixtonnes.

It's designed so that it's not really visible from the street, by setting back from the parapet of the original building.

The trick doesn't work for nearby high-rise residents of course.

Whatever it is, it doesn't look very nice or complement the building very well.
Bit early to tell, tbf. It'll be difficult to see it from the ground. The brick looks a pretty good colour match anyway. What's under the plastic sheeting?

AKA some / certain posters
I saw it yesterday from the ground and thought it was fairly discreet - as are the new houses out back. My guess is that not a lot of thought was given to the aerial view.

Undermining strikes :-(

Agreed.

I'd assume the bricks will fade to match the rest of the building after a couple of years...
