Pete Doherty says The Libertines will open their own ‘hotel’

Carl Barât has been 'nest-egging' for a place 'on the seafront'

Pete Doherty has claimed that he will open a ‘Libertines Hotel’ with bandmate Carl Barât.

Speaking to Q Magazine, Doherty recalled how Barât announced the “massive” news to him recently.

“He’s been nest-egging,” Doherty said. “All our advances. Cos he know I always just spunk mine. He’s got this gaff now, on the seafront, I won’t say where.”


The singer continued: “We’re gonna open a Libertines Hotel. With a studio, nightclub, a bar. He’s dead set on it.”

Doherty said that the hotel will be “open to anyone who’ll pay the bills”.


Elsewhere in the Q interview, Doherty shared his opinion of President-elect Donald Trump, saying the world is “going through a cycle of hatred and anger”.

Doherty also recently spoke to Channel 4 News about getting clean for his Bataclan concert.

In support of his new solo album ‘Hamburg Demonstrations’, Doherty’s UK tour recently culminated with a raucous show at The O2 Forum in Kentish Town, London – where he covered Oasis, Leonard Cohen and The Velevet Underground, along with a handful of The Libertines’ classics with CarlBarât.

Speaking of progress on The Libertines’ next album, Barât has told NME: “We’re looking to bed in together. We want to get our own place, which is a bit of a long and convoluted project. There’s a lot of planning and maybes which I can’t say too much about, but we’re looking at getting our own factory. If we don’t have something by next year, then my name’s not Donald Clinton.”
