When it soft opens tomorrow, Old City Brit-ish pub the Victoria Freehouse will finally bring an end to the long, sad saga that was Swanky Bubbles, the cocktail bar that ended its run in the fall of 2011 under the prying eyes of SpikeTV’s Bar Rescue. As mentioned before the new joint, which is owned by Edward Strojan, whose anglophile inclinations have given rise to Haddonfield, New Jersey’s English Gardener gift shop and British Chip Shop. Inside reports that twelve taps at the pub will pour a mix of British and American brews, while the kitchen will turn out grub inspired by popular dishes from the United Kingdom, including fish and chips, bangers and mash, a full English breakfast for Sunday brunch. The official grand opening gets underway on Friday, March 8 at noon. [Insider]
