A friend and I first visited the wonderful little bar below almost 4 years ago. Back then it was already clear that the area was changing, as a large number of buildings had already been pulled down to make way for numerous new apartment blocks.
Fast forward to the present day, and the redevelopment has progressed considerably, with the bar itself one of the last original structures still standing. The nearby train station, which makes the land so precious, now clearly visible behind it.
The lovely owners, however, are simply carrying on regardless, cheerfully serving food and drinks just like they have for the last 52 years. Something they are intent on doing until the demolition crew can be deterred no more. And from a customer perspective, once seated inside, everything felt exactly the same aside from the natural passage of time.
