Moscow mule

Fiona Bruce may soon have an alternative venue to the Langham Hotel for her pre-10 O'Clock News cocktail. New premises are under construction at 114 Great Portland Street (soon to be groovier than King's Road in the last century) which will operate as a coffee shop and cocktail bar under the title Love Die Late.

Formerly home to a travel company, the ground and lower ground floor will open 0700 for coffee, and plans to close around 2300, or midnight at weekends. The route to an alcohol licence has been tricky; you can only get a cocktail on the ground floor if you're seated at a table.

The owners have withdrawn an application to play "recorded music", which would have required sound limiters and more, in favour of "background music". They apparently want to show films in the basement.
