Another about Montmartre

I like how the door curves at the top with the similarly curved sign done in simple black and white. Pure white walls, not overly done, with the antique window panels, it's like bringing the whole look back to its original state, back to ol' Montmartre. Dessous translates to 'being underneath' or 'under', Ginette is probably the name of the old owner, probably named because the place is under a stairway. Ginette's Hangout...

Guess what, I did a search in google and found what it looked like before (below). How ugly. Euck. Good thing they repainted the walls and did a new signage. What were they thinking??? It looked like a cheap birthday cake you get from Safeway...Sorry I'm just trashing it...eeuuck

Oh by the way, this is a bar/restaurant/café.

Hmphhhh....very tacky indeed. What a big difference! Just by changing the colour of the wall! Kinda remind me of Polly Pocket for some strange reason. -- eLLy*
