Floridita no more
"My mojito in the Bodeguita del Medio and my daiquiri in the Floridita"
To mark the end of an era I have taken some photos of what used to be Life Bar in the Irish Life mall, and then became Floridita, and is now scheduled for demolition
I am not sure if this lovely mosaic artwork beside the bar will survive so I snapped a photo for posterity
It's not the most attractive building so all I will miss is the memories - of Life Bar in particular! I used to enjoy joking that it felt like we were in Ally McBeal with a bar literally in our work building.
I am assuming the fish tank behind the tills is long gone, well before the demolition
Farewell! Thanks for the memories :-)
A view into the condemned building :-(
It is all completely boarded up now and you cannot see in to it anymore, so I guess this is the very last I will ever see of Life Bar/Floridita. It really is goodbye this time *sob sob sniffle sniffle*
