The former Cube club/bar, sporadically open on the corner of Camberwell Grove and Church Street, has reopened as the grandly named Club Couture. I never went to Cube, although I went there on occasion many years ago when it was the anonymous club beneath the Greek restaurant, and the only place open after 11pm. I can only remember that it was small, and I was drunk.
Further down the road, the hairdresser, Cube (no relation) is to stay open and expand. The owner had planned to sell after 13 years in the area, but the deal fell through so he’s decided to open a tanning/massage/health area in the basement. I’ve been getting my hair cut at Cube (and its previous incarnation, Kut Klose) more or less since it opened (with a few years gap when I moved away), so I’m happy it’s staying.
In non-Cube non-news, still no word on what’s happening at Redstar, no signs of movement at Angels & Gypsies, and I’m still waiting for someone to provide a review of the toilet on the Green.
