The laid back Laundry

No I’m not going to talk about my washing.

A former laundry/dry cleaners on the corner of Cuba and Abel Smith Streets has re-emerged as yet another local watering hole – the Laundry on Cuba.

Laundry decor

The feel is very beachy, with rustic and retro decor and furniture (which works), several sunny spots, and the staff welcoming and friendly.  A bit like a mini Meow really, but smaller and with more glass and sun.

Above the bar are a string of individually iced dia de los muertos skull cookies for $5, and a skull painted on the window, so a little south american with the beachy.

Food is finger fare only – burgers (nearly all variants of beef with a couple of vego options for good measure), tacos and toasties.  Clever really in terms of kitchenware and washing effort.  Down home and simple.

Laundry tacos

And beware no credit cards accepted here.  

A regular diet of live music abounds from around 8pm most nights, and there is a small but pleasant enough range of beer and wine.

And interestingly, an eclectic mix of customers in there on a Wednesday early evening, not full of hipsters as anticipated.

Check out the staff climbing up and down to the storage cupboard at the top of the wall ladder, and most definitely drop in for a casual drop and graze if in the neighbourhood.

240 Cuba Street.
