Jazz club to open at Moby Dick, Russell Place

I was in the Moby Dick yesterday evening for a quick drink with a friend and there was the sound of sawing and hammering coming from above. A perusal of the Southwark News today reveals all - a new jazz and swing club is being launched in the upstairs bar of the Moby. Called Monroe's, the launch event will take place on Sunday. Club singer Phil Lee has been employed by Millwall FC as a pre- and post-match entertainer, and the owners of the new club expect Millwall FC supporters to attend the events. Initially Monroe's will be open on Sunday afternoons, but they will look at opening on Fridays and Saturdays in the future.

I have no idea how that will impact Sunday nights in the immediate vicinity of the pub at closing time - better than Friday or Saturday nights I suspect. It is a matter of waiting to see what type of clientele the club attracts.
