The Albert opened it's doors on the 1st December 2017 after extensive renovations of a space formally occupied by "The Vestry" or "5th Avenue. The basement of the Vestry building had been left empty for almost 20 years and was forgotten about and a generation passing it by and never knowing what was below them. After 6 months of renovations the basement was transformed into The Albert, a name which is close to our heart as it represents family and it brings together two grandfathers names Albert & Robert. These are two men which have influenced me but also the whole family and when deciding upon a name felt right to honour them.
Our goal was always to bring together the feel of a traditional local pub with a modern bar, we aim to provide an amazing service and try to treat all our customers old or new as if they are a regular. This is even true down to selection of drinks we serve providing establishing and popular brands along side new and up and coming drinks.
