Formerly the National Westminster Bank, this establishment states that it is situated in their vaults and is open four nights a week from Wednesday to Saturday and open from 6pm to 1am. However, further information received says their opening hours are Sunday to Thursday, 10am to 11 pm; Friday and Saturday 10am to 12pm.

Between it being a pub and the bar it was used as an art gallery.

 

The Bank inside

Very short lived this one, so says Jan Pedersen, opened 2008, closed 2009.

Apparently May 2011 shows some sign of work being done inside the premises and for some reason the old sign of the "Earl Grey" is housed inside.

Both "The Bank" and the "Earl Grey" are owned by The Creative Foundation, which is probably why the sign shown below is currently being housed in this building.
