Set in the immense vaults beneath The Royal Exchange, The Libertine is the new home of indulgence in the heart of the city. Sitting on the site where the very first royal alcohol licence in Britain was granted, the space is steeped in hedonism and mischief.


The bustle and opportunity around the old Royal Exchange, built in 1571, attracted merchant, heralds and rogues from across the city and beyond.  Once the day’s work was done (and often before), the assembled traders would partake of boisterous ‘tippling’ in the vaults under the Exchange.


The Libertine is a modern revival of those free-spirited times, with spaces for drinking, dining and unwinding well into the night, away from prudish prying eyes.


Food & Drink:

Formerly famed for the simple pies and smoked fish that would sustain a days trade, The Royal Exchange is now home to a welcoming restaurant. Enjoy wholesome seasonal fare prepared with the finest quality produce from lunch until late throughout the week and a traditional roast on Sunday. Choose from snacks for the table, starters, seafood dishes, a selection of dry-aged steaks and grande cuts alongside traditional mains and desserts.


Events & Private Hire:

The Libertine is a place for free-spirited revelry. We are available for both semi-private bookings and full private hire of the historic vaults. Spaces for hire include the private dining room, the hidden alcove lounge ‘The Whiskey Vault’, our restaurant and the bar area. For groups of 4 to 450, we will work with you to create a bespoke package that perfectly matches the needs of your event.
