What Happened to the Cove Bar – Part 2
Published: Jun 25th, 2011 |
An early morning stroll across Covent Garden, an open door and accommodating staff enabled me to get this set of pictures. They show the new patisserie called La Duree which is sited on the north-western corner of the main Covent Garden market building. Recently opened, the smell of fresh paint is still in the air – too early even for coffee.
Of course some of you may recognise that these pictures show what became of the Cove Bar – London’s only cornish pub which closed at the beginning of 2011 – see So Farewell to the Cove Bar in Covent Garden for my sparse collection of photos from the Cove. The transformation is significant – gone is the plain wood and the cosy rustic charm. Also gone is the old bar formed from a part of a real fishing boat.
I’d like to thank the staff of La Duree who were happy for me to take these pictures even if they weren’t really sure why. I even tried to describe what the Cove was like since the French staff had never experienced its previous incarnation.
