The Old Bank opened on 16th September 1997 in the premises of the old TSB bank in Eastgate Street. London based Regent Inns spent £3.5 million on the conversion, which took four months to complete. The bar was aimed at attracting ‘smart, but casual customers’. Manager Robert Lewis told the ‘Citizen’ newspaper: “It is for people that don’t want to go into places where there’s loud music. This is a place where you can come for a business meeting. You haven’t got all-day drinkers in here. They are mainly shirt and tie people.”
