They say when the Lord burns down a pub, he’s giving you a prime opportunity for a refit. So, though Peggy might need to leave the window open for a day or two to get rid of the smell of Roast Phil, it’s time to redecorate the Queen Vic! Yay!
The big question is, how will the Mitchell clan refit the Queen Vic?
Irish Theme Pub – What could be more English than an Irish themed-pub? Maybe a slight change to the name – Queenie O’Vic’s – a couple of barrels strewn about the place, maybe a fishing net hanging from ceiling to wall, and aged Guinness adverts.
Yuppie Wine Barb – It’ll get rid of those grubby market vendors once and for all. No seats, lots of smooth surfaces and standing podiums to totally alienate their customers.
Coffee Bar – Maybe there’s a correlation between how much the residents of Walford drink and how depressed they are/the number of violent incidents on Albert Square? Why not tone it down a little bit with a Central Perk-style coffer shop and a soothing open mic night?
Strip Club – Why not? The cash strapped lady residents of Albert Square could work the pole. Yes, picture the scene as a strop-faced Bianca struts across the bar in thigh-high boots. Oooh, sexy…
