The Libertines Are Opening Their Own Hotel/Studio

And it's called... The Albion Rooms

The Libertines are set to open their own hotel/studio complex in Margate.

The band took over the Victorian building in the English seaside town last year, and have spent time renovating each room.

Placing a studio in the building, The Albion Rooms will launch later this year with fans and musicians able to make use of the complex.

Already at work on their fourth studio album, The Libertines promise that The Albion Rooms will be "a living art space, a Warholian factory, with guest rooms, a bar and studio."

A five story, ten room building that overlooks Margate's famous band stand, you can check out footage of The Albion Rooms below.
