Lactobar Retro-Bistro is a new and very popular restaurant in Oradea, Romania (Lactobar means milk bar, in Romanian). Obviously, the drink of choice is not milk, but bear, however what’s interesting about this joint is the outlandish, crazy, cool and perfectly kitsch decor.
From an old Romanian car embedded into the wall to doilies, old newspapers, tapes, dolls and vacuum cleaners, this place reuses all the odds and ends one usually finds in one’s attic or grandmother’s house – and mashes them into a highly polished, friendly collage.
Sheer genius, it reminds me a bit of the Kitsch Museum, opened in Bucharest sometime during the early 00s. Anyway, lots of images – and a video – after the jump!
