The Monk






The Monk café, closed for a year, is back in business. The new guys made sure that the reopening did not go unnoticed, which at the same time made it impossible - I did not even try- to get into the café itself. I wanted to take photos of the "Art Déco" billiard room, the remodeled interior, the green ceiling and the white metro tiles....

  8. Hallo Anni,
    Ze hebben zich in elk geval de middelen gegeven om een opening "en fanfare" te verzekeren!
