Here's a nice piece of artwork depicting the interior details of Cafe Americain, the pub that opened in the early 80's in Union Street.
It's a kind of half architectural design & half artists impression - modern chic with a touch of art nouveau.
Once you delve into the collage, you can see a few of the pubs main features - the spiral staircase, the wooden panels, the potted plants and it also includes 2 birds-eye views of downstairs and upstairs, where you can make out the layout of the tables, the bar areas and even the toilets.
There is the reminder on the downstairs plan that the bar was on a raised part of the floor which had a couple of steps connecting it. It was quite a common sight to watch people stumble on these as the night wore on, leaving them with the sensation that they were not quite as cool as they thought they were!
Never happened to me though!!!!!!
To refresh your memory, there are a few photos of Cafe Americain already up on Retro. Just type it in the search box to find them.
