Oh haaai cherry pie! For those who are not familiar with this wonderful Windsor institution, you have been missing out! An oldie but a goodie, Tyranny of Distance has been providing locals and Swinburne students alike with fantabulous food and even better drinkies (from what I’ve heard!) since 2008. FYI, happy hour at the lubritorium is everyday between 5-7pm #you’rewelcome
Stage right is the entrance to their enclosed smoke free dining area that meshes Rio Carnivalesque colours with op shop treasures #didsomebodysaysamba
More finishes eye candy of the inside dining area! Owners Carlo and George commissioned several Melbourne artists for the fitout, with Melbourne jeweller and goldsmith Marcos Davidson leading the regime. The finished concept is almost gallery like in exhibiting artworked pieces that have been recycled, reclaimed and re-used.
It’s just so right…
The various vintage pieces throughout the venue gives homage to the site originally being a lube garage (for cars, silly!)
Everything in the cafe feels like it has a super cool story to tell… Tyranny of Distance is like the Grandmaster Flash of eco-industria that is soo haute right now!
From raw metal beams to unpolished concrete floors, it’s like what I’ve always wanted my bachelorette pad to be… except for the bachelorette part! Oh, and did you know you can pretty much smoke everywhere on this side of the cafe ;)
Seriously, this place totes floats my boat on aesthetics alone #suckerforaprettyface
Now that’s a totem of mass reconstruction!
These light fittings created from rustic old gas bottles kinds reminds me of those recycled LPG gas bottle fruit bowls from Industria X on Gertrude Street, Fitzroy – do you know which ones I mean?
A little birdie told me they get their bewdyful bouquets fresh everyday from Sarrucci on Chapel Street, Prahran…
A native flora by any other name… Does anyone (this is your cue landscape architects) know what this is?
Chair porn! Soo many choices, only one booty…
I find that I am developing a fetish for fine china in my old age #octagonsaucerforUFClovers
Today’s special was slow cooked lamb shoulder with confit garlic, spinach and pinenuts wrapped in their signature flatbread… how could I resist?
Homemade fruit salad crumble muff. That is all.
Ciao for now carabao. Happy drooling xoxo
