Last month, The Libertines played an intimate show at a pub in Margate, ahead of opening their hotel in the Kent seaside town.
Frontman Pete Doherty first spoke of plans to open a hotel back in 2016, saying: “We’re gonna open a Libertines hotel. With a studio, nightclub, a bar,” adding that it would be “open to anyone who’ll pay the bills”.
It was later revealed that the five storey, 10-room property will be named The Albion Rooms, with an opening date and launch party to be announced in due course.
A press release states: “Inspired by the celluloid co-habitation antics of the Beatles and the Monkees, Carl, Gary, John and Peter had been looking for a creative home: a living art space, a Warholian factory, with guest rooms, a bar and studio.”
Fans were also told of the chance to buy a personalised brick in the hotel’s designated recording studio for £125. According to the band’s website it’s “the unique chance to be immortalised into Libertines history with your very own brick in our recording studio. Once finished, you’ll receive images of your brick in situ and as part of the overall finished wall.
