The Polyester Lounge



Bar next door to the Oldenburg hotel this week that caught the imagination right from day one. After a few busy days, managed to stick the head in the door on Saturday night. It was before 10, therefore dead and deserted as clearly Sheena was a rookie. NO ONE goes out before 1.... An extreme Sweaty Betty's vibe jacked up x 1000.

All of the furniture and decor was authentic '70s Americano

Music from time to time. Stuck my head in the door again on Sunday night with a work peep and they were showing futball to a few dozen 20-somethings in neatly organized rows of folding chairs. They do cinema too...

Sheena felt very very at home here.

Not a big rum and Coke fan - but a real hand squeezed Cuba Libre is to die for. Good Havana Club dark rum, touch of Coke from a real glass bottle, 2 muddled lime halves, a splash of Rose's lime cordial and ice. Had 3.

So you buy cocktails from the bartender (using only authentic '70s cocktail accoutrements) but you get your beer from this astoundingly still functional model 1.0 cold drink dispenser. Yes, for real.

I thought it was a Univac when I walked in.



Pretty small web presence, but if in northern Germany before you hit all the nothingness before the Danish border, check it out. Tell 'em Sheena sent you.

Yes, you can sit in the chairs in the window ledge. The cool kids do...

Oooo. Cool place.

We'll have to do Sweaty Betty's again sometime. I liked it.
