The Phene(ix)

Delivering my last Christmas cards by hand tonight, I came across a welcome sight. The Phene, former drinking hole of George Best [video], has reopened after three and a half years.

The place closed down because people moved into the area and then tried to turn this corner of Chelsea into a mausoleum (estate agent-speak for a morgue).

I like the refurbishment. Much better seats quite busy on a Thursday evening. The London Pride’s ok, there is a deli counter and free wifi.
