Pubs are closing all across the country, but here in The Bush a new pub, The Draft House, is opening up on Shepherd's Bush Road. The pub will celebrate the historic music venue The Hammersmith Palais (all that is left is the sign above) which was demolished in 2013, despite having played host over the years to The Beatles,  The Rolling Stones, The Who, David Bowie and The Sex PistolsThe Draft House is offering neighbours a special deal: from Feb 23-25 food and drink are half price for locals. What more could you ask?

The pub is the seventh of publican Charlie McVeigh's chain of Draft Houses, and is opening up on the site which was formerly home to The Laurie Arms pub, at 238 Shepherd's Bush Road.

The pub will formally re-open on February 26, but it is inviting local people to try it out during special Neighbours Nights from February 23 - 25 when food and drink will be half price.

The design and decoration of the pub will celebrate the glory days of the Hammersmith Palais, before the Council got hold of it and turned it into (yawn) residential flats.
