2018 | CAFÉ | MARRICKVILLE
Reflecting the owner/operator’s theatrical past, this energetic café set within a gritty industrial street in Sydney’s Marrickville channels the milk bars of yester-year that once dotted the Inner West.
Retro influences abound including an arched timber and marble-paneled service bar, vinyl floors, plus velvet and laminate in tangy colours and punchy patterns. The illuminated bulkhead above the bar recalls Hollywood mirrors and Art Deco cinema signage, whilst custom tasseled pendant chandeliers sway above local creative types and young families mingling around the tiled communal table beneath them.
