Laundry on Cuba

Once an earthquake prone Laundromat, the fate for this little place on upper Cuba Street changed almost a year ago. The building got strengthened and the new owners - all engineers - gave it a unique up-cycled retro makeover and changed it into a buzzing bar at night and a cafe during the day.

Recycled doors, grandma's lamps & chandeliers, psychedelic wallpaper in the bathrooms makes waiting in the queue a trippy experience. It's also home to the biggest vintage suitcase collection I've ever seen...

It has a great selection of Djs and bands and serves an ever changing range of local craft beers. Classic foods like burgers, tacos & wraps come out of the retro caravan-kitchen in the backyard (also delicious vegetarian stuff yumyum!)
Check it out on the corner of Cuba & Abel Smith Street. To see what's on visit their fb page.

And here's a few daylight photos. I love the recycled wood in the courtyard:

Car piston ashtrays :))
